He desperately needs to recover his past: who he is and where he came from… But his past hides many secrets. Bert wants to protect Owen from who he was before; he actively discourages Owen from prying into the misplaced decades of his life. For Frank, Owen’s return gouges open old wounds. Over the course of the weekend, Owen keeps a diary, penning new memories of his life with Marilyn. Who is Owen Parker? He is who Marilyn says he is.
