Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Director Timothy Busfield’s intergenerational drama stars Jeff Daniels (the film’s scriptwriter), Thomas Macias and Richard McWilliams. A disillusioned Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright travels to a small Michigan town, where he encounters a young aspiring playwright who idolizes him. His world-weary cynicism about his artistic career is challenged by the latter’s youthful enthusiasm and optimism.
