Synopsis

Samantha (Rhian Ramos), is a recent University graduate who moves back home after her parents have passed away, while Eric (Osric Chau), a Hollywood stuntman and body double comes back to shoot a new film. Since returning, Samantha can’t seem to connect with anyone in her life, friends, family, and has difficulty expressing her frustration and feeling of being back home to her family. Similarly, Eric struggles with forming a bond with his estranged grandmother, culture, and frustrations surrounding his job as a stunt double. On a night out, Eric has a brief encounter with Samantha and the two meet again later, rekindling an acquaintance from high school that forms an unexpected new friendship with a new found meaning “home.”
