    • Synopsis
    • In a not-so-distant-future San Francisco, Jimmie Fails has one hope in life: to reclaim the majestic Victorian house his grandfather built and his family lost due to financial hardship and drugs. Every week, Jimmie and his only friend, Montgomery, make a pilgrimage across town to Jimmie’s dream home and imagine what life would be like if this neighborhood had never changed. When they realize the house’s current owners have moved out, Jimmie decides to recreate the home his family once had. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, Jimmie’s domestic aspirations blind him to reality.
