In this Sundance Award Winning film we discover two men each searching in their quiet solitude to begin a new life amidst an unspoken need for encouragement and support. Having recently declared bankruptcy, Martin Bonner has just uprooted his life to Reno from the East Coast, leaving behind two adult children and a life he spent decades building. He's working a new job as a volunteer helping prisoners transition to freedom. It's Martin's first job in two years. Recently released after 12 years in prison and now in the transition program, Travis Holloway is sent back into the world bankrupt of self-esteem as well as of a normal life. To their surprise their lives and stories begin to converge as they find that they have much in common until their unlikely friendship is put to the test when Travis betrays Martin's trust.

The action is in the interactions- no excess drama.
These lives were enough to pique my interest.
Fantastic movie. Extremely well acted, and beautifully edited.
i ENJOYED THIS MOVIE
A modest film that delineates its characters beautifully, each of them struggling and striving. No big drama, just many fine quiet moments.
So many films out there, I waited too long to see this one. A beautiful existential journey into the themes of maturing, isolation, community, and the human condition. Great writing. Fine acting. Chad Hartigan pulls this nuanced story together in such a powerful and poignant way. A mystical and subtle score compliments. Beautiful to watch. . . Oh, did I say I liked it.
