A husband comes home early to find his wife cheating with another man. His reaction breaks my heart.

Bobby is an ordinary man, married for some time to his wife Sherry. It’s not a happy marriage — there’s a hint of past unresolved tragedy that doesn’t reveal itself until the very end — and the couple’s bond hangs together on a fragile thread.

Intimate, subtle and precisely constructed, this family drama captures those moments in life where a couple can go either way: they can move forward together or split apart in different directions.

Well-acted all around, the short is anchored by a powerful performance by actor Mark Ashworth, who offers incredible vulnerability and melancholy as a man adrift in his own life and alienated from everyone around him.

“Grape Soda” is full of quiet observation and patient compassion, offering a moving portrait of the powerful emotions underlying ordinary life — and the courage it takes to confront enormous loss.
