Follows David as he moves back home to be with his mother for the year between her giving up her fight against cancer and slowly dying. Davids relationship with his family is, at best, strained (especially in regard to his father) because of an apparent difficulty in accepting his homosexuality. Although the subject matter is genuinely distressing, his mothers death ultimately helps restore his familial bonds and become an integrated part of the family unit again.

All the feels
14 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let it be known that the minute I finished this movie I felt the need to review it and somehow personally let Chris Kelly know how much of a fan I am of this work.

I'm not great with words and I've never written a review before, so please bear with me on this one.

I watched this on a whim while I was at home on a Saturday. Chris Kelly told a wonderful story and directed a wonderful movie. I laughed so much and I cried harder than ever before during this one. All the feels were felt, and isn't that how a good movie is supposed to make you feel?

I knew going into this I wouldn't be disappointed as I was highly impressed with the cast, but it's really the writing and directing that did it for me.

This was a really beautiful project and I cannot wait to see and hear more dramatic work from the talented Chris Kelly.
