Jawbone is a provocative, bold, and controversial dark comedy about a man on the edge trying to come to terms with the death of his beloved mother.
Jawbone explores what it means to be a “successful man” in modern society.
By the modern definition, a “successful man” has a high-paying job, is married, 2 kids, an investment property and takes the family on holidays to Disneyland. Tim hasn’t achieved any of these defining milestones. His family, friends and society see him as an abject failure – as does he. It’s at this rock-bottom state where he breaks from the shackles of his own comatose existence and begins living more “freely” on the edges of life – standing up to his more “successful” married brother, quitting his job as a teacher, gambling, drinking, smoking, exploring his sexuality and finding love.
