SYNOPSIS:
Philip revels in a life without responsibilities until he’s reunited with one that was taken away from him – his son, Max. After the passing of Max’s mother, Philip is merely tasked with escorting him to his aunt’s home, but, along the way, a long withheld truth provokes hope for an overdue bond. Meanwhile, Charlie, a physical therapist-in-training, is forced to take on her own mother, once a model, as her primary patient. Charlie decides a trip into nature is just what her obese and willfully home-bound mother needs until what was meant to be a refreshing venture becomes overwhelmingly suffocating. While wading in the gravity of their loneliness, Charlie and Philip manage to find each other, fostering an acquaintanceship amidst a hallway they share as neighbors.
