A contemporary American family fractures and gradually disintegrates, in this bleak, heavy and somber domestic drama from avant-garde pioneer Jon Jost (All the Vermeers in New York). Keith Scales stars as Jeff, a husband and father living and working as a real estate agent in dead-end Newport, Oregon, with his wife Mattie (Kate Sannella and 26-year-old son Chris (Ryan Harper Gray) nearby. Initially, all seems well, but appearances are deceptive in this case - and within a short time, fissures in the placid surface become evident: Chris is actually an unemployed slacker, co-habitating with (and living off of) his much younger girlfriend (Kat Eastman); meanwhile, a despairing Mattie hits the bottle, and Jeff's business begins to fall to pieces when Mattie fails to take critical papers to the bank. Not long after Chris's girlfriend unexpectedly dumps him, and Chris begins seeing a local therapist (Steve Taylor), we learn that Chris is actually Jeff's stepson. Jeff's biological son, Steve, is stationed in Iraq. And when Steve returns- not alive and well, but in a transfer tube - his death and funeral push Jeff, Mattie and Chris to the point of complete emotional destruction.
