Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A mentally ill father with criminal past moves out of a group home and struggles to support himself in this intimate psychological drama. At 19 Jack Hill was diagnosed with mental illness. Now at 33 he's in the process of recovery, and his future is looking bright. In just two weeks Jack (Gbenga Akinnagbe) will leave his group home, yet despite the fact that he now has a stable job, Dr. Parker (James McDaniel) still has some serious concerns about his troubled patient's ability to readjust to life on the outside. Shortly after Jack moves into his new apartment, his job takes a turn for the worse and his rent suddenly spikes. Desperate to prove to his independence to his ex-wife Laura (Tawny Cypress) and their young son John, Jack makes the ill-advised decision to supplement his income with a few nefarious side jobs. Before long, Jack has fallen back into the company of some pretty shady characters. Meanwhile, try as she might to provide Jack with the support he needs to reclaim his life, his compassionate nurse Denise (K.K. Moggie) can't be with him every step of the way. Now, with redemption finally within reach, Jack vows to do everything in his power to reclaim his life from chaos.
