After being diagnosed with terminal cancer, a divorced man takes custody of his contemptuous teenage son, for whom quality time means doing drugs, engaging in small-time prostitution and avoiding his dying father. In his last chance to fulfill one of his life's dreams, the dad, who is an architect, begins to rebuild an old house.

Uneven but moving story of reconcilliation.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has drug use, very strong language, sexual situations and references, including teen prostitution, nudity, masturbation involving attempted suffocation, and adult-teen sexual encounters. Teenagers take very foolish risks with little consequence beyond their own misery. There is a very sad death.
