About The Show

Charles's son, Charles, has a son named Charles.

In the present, three generations of fathers and sons struggle to communicate as their family line grows and ages across a vast ocean of time. How do individuals continue to exist through the passing of the years? Do I eat pickles on my sandwich because my great great grandpa did? Charles, Charles, Charles, Charles, Charles Charles Charles.
