Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A young stoner attempts to help his mother work through the nervous breakdown she suffered as a result of her husband's philandering, and gets some unexpected help from a few unlikely allies in this warm-hearted family drama. Augusta (Virginia Madsen) was a devoted Connecticut mother whose life fell to pieces when she learned that her husband was sleeping with another woman. When he ultimately abandons his family, Augusta experiences a complete mental collapse. Although her youngest son may be a pothead, he can't sit idly by and watch his mother deteriorate, and with the help of his vibrant live-in girlfriend (Amanda Crew) and estranged older brother (Zach Gilford) he organizes a concerted effort to pull Augusta out of her crippling depression. Sam Trammell, Eva Longoria, and Anthony LaPaglia co-star.
