Synopsis by Jinko Labitag
Radio host Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix) is busy going around the country interviewing young people about their lives, dreams, and fears when he receives a call from his sister Viv (Gaby Hoffman). She asks him to temporarily take care of her son Jesse (Woody Norman), as her husband has just suffered a mental breakdown. Johnny agrees and immediately heads to Los Angeles. Though the relationship of the uncle and nephew is strained at first, the two grow closer as they spend time together. Written and directed by Mike Mills.
