A grieving mother cannot "move on" after her son's death, keeping his room as it was, wanting her younger boy to be like his dead brother. A youth leaves juvenile detention, going home to an angry father and a lonely young step-mother. A college teacher whose brother has autistic behaviors separates from his wife and is attracted to a student. The narrative discloses slowly the mother, youth, and teacher's connections to a car accident. The paroled youth talks to the dead boy's girlfriend and must sort out his relationship with his step-mother; the professor encourages his brother to go on a date. Can the mother see her living son for who he is? In what ways can each be normal? In what ways can each be normal?Written by
good cast, interesting idea. and an old recipes who do not really working in this case. the lost son, the characters connections around this tragedy are far to be a new subject and that is the great problem of movie. it seems be confuse, it seems use a seductive cast for ambiguous purpose. slice of gray universe, dominated by frustration and bad emotions, it is saved by the acting of actors - Carrie - Anne Moss is the best example. admirable is , in same measure, the work of Kevin Zegers and Tygh Runyan but , after the end, it seems be not enough. something missing and the cause is that you knows the story lines and the ambition of profound one is lost in too many details. short - a decent film. but nothing more.
