    • Synopsis
    • STOCK BURTON (Noah Reid) is a local legend. A monumental event from his past has frozen him, sent his family into a tailspin and pitted his small town against him. Now he’s simply chosen to drop out of life and ‘retire’, joining his recently separated Grandfather, HAROLD, (Jack Daniel Wells) at the Golden Seasons senior’s home, where life is safe, comfortable and worry free… with three delicious meals a day. But after two years of crokinole playing, pill popping and blissful denial of his problems, Stock is forced to return to reality. Outside the safety of Golden Seasons, Stock’s past quickly catches up with him, and he knows he must finally face DAHLIA (Meghan Heffern), the person who suffered most from Stock’s past mistake. With the help of PATTI, (Melanie Leishman) a cute girl with a criminal record who recognizes all the good in him, Stock starts to muster the strength he needs to finally make things right. Along the way he must learn to look life in the eye, accept its imperfections, and re-open his heart for a chance to move on.
