What happens when a child does something so horrific that he has to be sent away? What do you do when you are that child’s parent? Based on actual cases and fictionalized into the story of a single man searching for his emotionally disturbed son- THE GONE CHAIR- tells the story of Martin Dregger a mild mannered every day father in the Pacific Northwest. When his son is sent away to a boot camp for children with violent tendencies Martin is left to ask if his own past has led to his son’s problems. And when his son goes missing… Martin is pushed into the middle of a storm trying to discover who’s to blame when the entire world seems pretty sick.
