In critically acclaimed filmmaker Harold Jackson III's insightful character piece void of Hollywood melodramatics, novelist Liam White's career has peaked—to put it kindly. Uninspired and burnt-out, the titular character loses his will to finish his next novel and even shirks his public appearance commitments. To top it all off, Liam is told by his oncologist that his cancer has returned. Resigned to the fact that his life will soon come to an end, he begins a journey of reflection as he comes to grips with his life thus far and the people who shaped him, for better and worse. Unfortunately for White, that involves his always disappointed and emotionally distant father, Liam Sr. (Terrence "T.C." Carson), and his mother (Jasmine Guy), who abandoned him and his father during his childhood. A familiar Washington, D.C., serves as the backdrop for this intimate and contemplative introspective journey.—Various sources
