A wayward son reconnects with his long-lost family as his father dies of cancer in this drama from first-time writer/director Andrew Levitas. Estranged from his family for years, Jonathan (Garrett Hedlund) learns that his cancer-stricken father Robert (Richard Jenkins) has decided to be taken off of life support, and races to be by his side. As Jonathan finds solace in the company of his mother (Anne Archer), sister (Jessica Brown-Findlay), and former flame (Amy Adams), his growing bond with a perceptive young cancer patient (Jessica Barden) and a stern-yet-big-hearted nurse (Jennifer Hudson) show the true value of compassion. Meanwhile, the heated debate over Robert's right to determine his own fate raises important questions about the true nature of freedom.
