A young man (Jonathan Groff, The Conspirator), smart and smug in equal measure, travels to sleepy Oregon in search of himself and life's purpose in this comedy-drama adapted from the autobiographical short story by acclaimed author David Sedaris. Winner of the New Cinema Award for director Kyle Patrick Alvarez at Seattle International Film Festival 2013.
"David has it all figured out. His plan - more a Steinbeckian dream - is to spend his summer working on an apple farm in Oregon with his best friend, Jennifer. When she bails out on him, David is left to dirty his hands alone, watched over by Hobbs, the old farm owner and the first in a series of questionable mentors he encounters. First there’s Curly, the friendly forklift operator with a unique hobby, and then Jon, the born-again rock hound who helps David in a time of need. This first film adaptation of David Sedaris’s work tells the story of a prideful young man and what’s left of him after all he believes is chipped away piece by piece." (Sundance Film Festival)
