Synopsis
JOYFUL PARTAKING takes place in one neighborhood over the course of a single day. The central story involves Walter Majeski, a former TV weatherman, whose young son perished in a freak snowstorm that Walter had failed to forecast. On this day, Walter decides its time to end his life, but his own ineptitude keeps getting in the way.

"Joyful Partaking is as fine a first feature as I have ever seen." - East Lansing Film Fest juror
"Marvelously directed with an amazing cast, this is a great, great movie!" raved Eric Campos in Film Threat. "As feel good as this comedy is, it still has quite a dark edge to it..."
"Lovely," seconded Variety, "truly independent... shifts seamlessly from comedy to tragedy and back again. The movie soars."
