The Designated Mourner synopsis
In a dystopian society where intellectuals are executed by the repressive, pseudo-fascist government, Jack (Mike Nichols) has relinquished his culture and curiosity, while his wife, Judy (Miranda Richardson), and especially her surly father, Howard (David DeKeyser), are far more reluctant. First Howard, and then Judy, are rounded up and eventually killed by the government -- and Jack, trying to recover from a mental collapse as a result, is left alone with his guilt.
