Fingerprint Smile • A Ten-minute play

by Eric Samuelsen

Murder. Aggravated Robbery. Years spent in the system. The grand-children know little to nothing. His parole is imminent and the grand-daughters are in turmoil. Not accepting. Not forgiving. Shouldn’t it be easier to forgive someone you’ve never met? But nothing in life is easy. It certainly wasn’t for Grandpa Frank.
