Shawney calls himself a filmmaker, but he's been a strip-club manager for longer. When he was six his father bought “The Manor”, a small-town strip club. Thirty years later, the family's lifestyle has got the better of them. While his 400-pound father prepares for stomach-reduction surgery, his 85-pound mother has her own complicated relationship with food. Shawney's role as struggling filmmaker and outcast son provides a rare glimpse into a family facing the consequences of their livelihood and dependence. Told with humor and frankness, THE MANOR is an intimate portrait of people struggling to call themselves a family.
