Expanded from her short film of the same name (TCFF ‘12), writer/director Kat Candler’s hard-hitting family drama explores adolescent angst through the eyes of 13-year-old hellraiser Jacob. In a small rural town in southeast Texas, single father Hollis (Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad”) has withdrawn to boozy depression following the death of his wife, and doesn’t have much in the way of fatherhood to offer his two boys. Left unattended, Jacob’s wild antics threaten to bring the family to collapse when his latest stunt draws the attention of Child Protective Services, and Jacob’s younger brother is removed from his father’s custody. A breakout hit at Sundance, this authentic and haunting family drama offers the very best of American indie cinema, including masterful performances by Aaron Paul and teenage newcomer Josh Wiggins.
