Melvin anderson has had success with everything in his life, except one thing... impregnating his wife. Determined to have a child at home, his wife Amy, unexpectantly brings an eight-year-old orphan named Chris to their home. Chris will not only enter their home, but their hearts. This is the story of a man frustrated with life, and his relationship with a little boy as he struggles to Adopt Change.Written by

Powerful script played by a great cast and a beatiful lightning / art work done, what else can you ask for a remarkable short drama film?
Loved little Darian's performance. I was especially touched by the relationship between Chris and Melvin since I could relate my own personal father-son experience, the need to grow up and overcome our own fears and self-imposed fails.
I really liked the Theatre scene, its dark style, great taste for music (the opera added so much feeling).
Mur and Weiss played like they really had some "things" -in their own particular way- to overcome. Even though it was so difficult to like Christopher's character, I really felt so close to his so-called frustration and his neverending effort (or stubbornness) to give up.
Definitely, want to see more of the creative mind behind this piece.
