A black comedy about a likeable screw-up fresh from de-tox who desperately wants to stay ‘clean’ but whose highly dysfunctional family seems to be doing everything they can to thwart him.


“Relative Evil” had its World Premiere at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival, just 2 days after 9/11, under the title “Ball in the House.” It is occasionally shown on television under its original title.
