Synopsis: In what seems like a typical night in the middle of the holiday season, Carson (Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts) returns home to his family after a long day of work. Barely able to sit together as a family for more than a few minutes, Carson’s son Garrett (Aaron Latta-Morissette) storms off to work his nightshift job in produce at Sherrity’s Supermarket.

With his son’s exit, and his wife Elsie’s (Mary Jo Mecca) indifference, Carson routinely turns to the internet to find physical comfort.

On this particular night, however, things don’t go quite as planned.

In a whirlwind of events, all previous family dynamics are shattered, and Carson must attempt to figure out a way to put the pieces back together.
