Runoff will make you laugh, make you cry, re-examine your moral fiber and take you on a thrilling journey of how family values create deep introspection. This family faces everyday problems just as any family does and tries to solve each members problems with a positive outcome, even though it may be unrealistic.

You will engage and relate to the difficult choices and decisions this family must make to try and move forward with their lives. The director and cast make this well written drama a cinema must see.
