Synopsis


"It was to finish something I started.


Micah and I started something.


I finished it.


That's it.


People want to make it really complicated but it's not"


At the beginning of the summer 21-year-old Leo set out from the West Coast cycling across America with his best friend.


After weeks of radio silence, no one is more surprised than his 91-year-old grandmother, Vera, when Leo turns up on her Manhattan doorstep in the middle of the night.


His life just starting, hers nearly ended, in a faded Greenwich Village apartment their griefs collide.
