MANSON FAMILY VACATION is an indie comedy film executive produced by the Duplass Brothers which premiered at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival. Written and directed by J. Davis, the film explores the lives of two brothers: one who’s devoted to his family; the other who’s obsessed with The Manson Family.
Nick Morgan (Jay Duplass) has it all: a loving family, a beautiful home and a successful law practice in Los Angeles. His estranged brother Conrad (Linas Phillips) has nothing but a backpack. When Conrad shows up for a surprise visit, all he wants to do in town is go to the infamous Manson Family murder sites. Reluctantly, Nick joins him and ends up on a road trip that leads the brothers into the modern-day world of Charles Manson.
