Joe O Brien is a forty-four-year-old police officer from the Irish Catholic neighborhood of Charlestown, Massachusetts. A devoted husband, proud father of four children in their twenties, and respected officer, Joe begins experiencing bouts of disorganized thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and strange, involuntary movements.

Each of Joe s four children has a 50 percent chance of inheriting their father s disease, and a simple blood test can reveal their genetic fate. While watching her potential future in her father s escalating symptoms, twenty-one-year-old daughter Katie struggles with the questions this test imposes on her young adult life. Does she want to know? What if she s gene positive? Can Read More chevron_right
