John’s Hand (2008) is a short film written and directed by Catherine Butterfield during the WGA strike in late 2007/early 2008. It was released in fall 2008 at Strike.tv, where it’s still available in HD.
John (Garret Dillahunt) is a scientist with his eyes on the stars. His wife Cynthia (Marin Hinkle) lives a life of quiet neglect with their young son downstairs. But John’s high-maintenance sister Terry (Kali Rocha) has come to visit, and she isn’t the kind of woman you ignore. By dredging up old memories and introducing seeds of doubt, Terry causes John to lose his protective cool, kicking the door open on his marital problems. The aftermath of his explosion leads to a tentative bond between the two women, whose greatest shared wish has always been to establish a connection with the unreachable John.
