New England Premiere

Director: Kat Candler

A portrait of a family on the brink of dissolution set against the haunting backdrop of the refineries of Southeast Texas. Obsessed with metal and motorcross, 13-year-old Jacob has begun to raise concerns with his actions, especially when they involve his little brother Wes. While the boys’ father Hollis (Aaron Paul) loves his sons, he is still reeling from the loss of their mother, spending more time at the bar or working on his damaged beach house than with them. When the authorities catch wind of the increasingly volatile situation, his Aunt Pam (Juliette Lewis) takes Wes into custody. In Wes’ absence, two things increasingly drive Jacob: winning a motocross race and getting his brother back.
