Spanking the Monkey Spanking the Monkey

A gripping comedy about letting go.

Raymond Aibelli is a promising pre-med student home briefly before leaving again for a prestigious summer internship. His plans however evaporate when his father insists he stay home to care for his mother who is recovering from a broken leg. There, he distracts himself with masturbation and lots of long walks, and even a half-hearted courtship of a much younger girl.
