Digital presentation - 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.
