How do you overcome the sudden loss of a loved one? A husband? A father? In his deeply moving portrait of grief, actor/director Joshua Leonard tries to find the answers. Margaret was always in full control of her life, but was not
prepared for the sudden loss of her husband. Completely destroyed and unable to bear the pain, she seeks solace in alcohol and neglects herself. And her son, who also is at a loss, but suppresses his grief to keep the family intact. Instead he retreats into the woods to deal with his pain there. Margaret realizes that she cannot risk also losing her son and follows him into the wilderness. An unsparing family drama with strong characters. Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei is brilliant as an alcoholic mother.
