From first-time writer and director Elizabeth Chomko, this "captivating family drama" that will make "you laugh as much as you cry" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) centers on a family in crisis. Bridget (two-time Oscar® winner Hilary Swank) returns home to Chicago at her brother's (two-time Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon) urging to deal with her ailing mother (two-time Emmy® Award winner Blythe Danner) and her father's (Oscar® nominee Robert Forster) reluctance to let go of their life together.
