Joel (Alessandro Nivola) lives a solitary existence, rarely straying from his narrow routines of working in a landfill and going through the motions of getting through the day. He faces emotional and psychological upheaval with the arrival of Will, his ten-year-old son whom he has never met. The boy, who has been abandoned by his mother, weighs 250 pounds, is diabetic, and needs serious care -- attention Joel may not be capable of giving. Their collective pain, in the face of an indifferent world, could be crushing. Together, they embark on a journey of survival.
A beautiful film with beautiful cinematography and music
Most people will miss the power message in this touching film. It forces you to feel and think with an open heart. I watch the ending scene over and over again and it brings tears to my eyes every time. Please make more films like this it's a rare gem and I loved it. Life is not perfect and we all struggle at times and at the end of the day all we can do is try to make the best with what we have.
