When your father turns out to be your worst enemy, where do you go to find your home?
McIntosh first appeared as a journalist on South African television screens in the early 2000s. His talent singled him out from the crowd. Bright, articulate and charismatic, his career looked dazzling. But behind McIntosh’s smile, a troubled past haunted him. His mother had disappeared when he was just a little boy. He and his sister were left to be brutally abused, when his father disappeared too. What would have happened to McIntosh, if a compassionate nun hadn’t taken him under her wing?
Eventually, the truth of his parents’ disappearance is revealed. McIntosh is thrown completely off course. He keeps a brightly polished gun, for the day he meets his father. Not even his intense scholarship doing a Masters Degree at the London School of Economics, can fill his emptiness. My Father, My Monster is the story of his journey to uncover the truth. McIntosh has to confront his father about his mother’s brutal death. Soon, he comes face to face with the worst dilemma a son can ever have: How can he possibly forgive, when his father remains a remorseless, brutal and heartless murderer?
