In rural upstate New York, four generations of an American family live closely together, struggling for contentment in a world that has thrown more than a few curveballs their way, including domestic abuse, teen pregnancy and post traumatic stress disorder. Director Michael Palmieri and photographer Donal Mosher’s beautifully realised film uses Mosher’s family, shot over the course of a year, to paint a vibrant portrait of a working class America far removed from Hollywood stereotypes. Whilst often trapped in circumstances beyond their control, each member of the family articulately reflects upon their past in mesmerizingly moving scenes, supported by luminous cinematography and a delicate score.

“Seeping through each gorgeously shot scene is a painful sense of listlessness,” The Washington Post
“A small and quiet masterpiece of transcendent filmmaking,” Hammer to Nail
