Description

Compassion, understanding and forgiveness flourish in this taut tale set along the Hudson River.

Craig Hill’s death and its circumstances are catalysts for change in the lives of the people closest to him in Troy, New York.

Danielle is left deeply in debt while handling her husband’s death, her small children’s experience of loss, and guilt from her mother-in-law.

Donny, one of Craig’s closest friends, has his own demons to fight and puts his hand through a window at his construction site, starting his downward fall.

Rob, a dutiful son who lives with his elderly parents and is trying to raise enough money to pay for his mother’s expensive life-prolonging surgery, grapples with the past and future as he comes to terms with Craig’s passing.

Jordan, who found fame and fortune in New York, has returned to build her success in her hometown. But this proves harder than she anticipated.

The tapestry of these characters’ stories and how Craig’s death affects their bittersweet transformations create a vivid exploration of personal dynamics amid upheavals that are difficult to bear.

Compassion, understanding and forgiveness flourish in this taut tale set along the Hudson River.
