David Karr, husband, father, White House press reporter, film producer, powerful millionaire, defense contractor, Corporate CEO, renaissance businessman… soviet agent? Ten for Grandpa is a fast paced, introspective look at the enigmatic life of a most influential ancestor. Structured by a list of unanswered questions, the film takes an analytical, clear-eyed, and often comedic look at the life of this complex character and the events surrounding his untimely demise. An existential hero operating outside the everyday constraints of society, or a sociopathic loose canon willing to indiscriminately betray associates, friends and family members alike in the service of his obsessive ambition?
