People Are Never Who They Seem To Be.
In this "mixture of poignant drama and quirky humor...delivered by a superb cast" (Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune), the Travis family experiences a stunning tragedy which begins to unravel them. Teenaged son Tim (Emile Hirsch, The Girl Next Door) views his life as a bad dream. His father, Ben (Jeff Daniels - Terms Of Endearment, The Hours), tunes out and treats his wife and children like strangers. His mother, Sandy (Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver 1986, Best Actress, Alien) sharpens her tongue and sarcasm and dulls her senses with pot while struggling hard to conceal a secret that threatens to ruin them all. With elements of pathos, salty humor and self-discovery, the Travises learn to accept one another as family - warts and all.
