Toilet

Toilet tells the story of Ray Courtney, a single man in his thirties from Boston whose Japanese-American mother passed away. Ray’s life is turned upside-down when he leaves his luxurious bachelor pad to move back to his mother’s home to live with his anxiety stricken older brother, presumptuous little sister and grandmother, who recently moved from Japan and does not speak a word of English. Ray shortly learns of his grandmother’s annoying habit of heavily sighing after using the toilet, which leads him into a quest to understand the relationship between toilet’s and world cultures.
