Synopsis

Filmmaker Doug Block focuses his camera on his only child Lucy, 17, as she is about to leave for college. As her departure nears, Block reflects on their close relationship, her coming-of-age, and their deep conversations. His wife Marjorie copes with Lucy's departure in her own way. Together, the couple ponders the next chapter after Lucy leaves them with an empty nest. Here, we have an exploration of the complexities of modern-day parenting, marriage, parent/child relationships and the hardship of letting go.
