A coming-of-age story about a young New Yorker struggling to take control of his reckless behavior in the face of momentous family challenges. (James White, Official Website)

As he retreats further into a hedonistic lifestyle, his mother's battle with a serious illness faces a series of setbacks that force him to assume more responsibility. With the pressure on him mounting, James must find new reserves of strength or risk imploding completely. (Sundance Institute, Official Website)
