A compelling drama that explores the different meanings of being a parent through the gritty, realistic lives of the struggling, blue-collar Porters, and the privileged Campbell family. Their lives intersect, intertwine and collide, all for the love of a little boy. This film bravely exposes the humanity in each character reminding us that we each have the potential to be the best and worst versions of ourselves at any time. Written by
The scene where Berry Pepper's character, Rip, is bitten by his dog was not part of the script until the dog decided to improvise it. Berry Pepper was actually bitten by his fellow actor, the dog. See more »
In the kitchen scene after Rip Porter smashes his empty bottle and gets consoled by Wendy, the positions of his head and of their hands around each other's heads change too suddenly between the subsequent shots while lines are being spoken across the cuts. See more »

After watching this powerful movie, I asked aloud why it wasn't nominated for any awards. It was only after I checked further that I discovered why: It is the product of a Christian movie production company and had limited distribution. The fact that I didn't know that, in itself, is a testament to the greatness of this movie. I'm a grown man who is usually not very emotional, but this movie had my tear ducts working overtime. I can't say enough about the cast, the script, the direction, the music and everything else. The story, about two sets of parents on the opposite ends of society, successfully avoids clichés and provides a realistic and painfully emotional story. This is a tour de force that came in completely under the radar. I highly recommend it.
