This is a student film through Fanshawe College that will be filming on March 7th-9th.

The story is of Alex, a young man still living with his family and working for his dad, while his friends had gone off to university without him. Baba, his father, is an immigrant to Canada and came here many years ago to raise his family by working hard and providing them with whatever they needed. He has since become overbearing and controlling, and is oblivious to Alex’s desires to be an artist and to college. Both are constantly butting heads, but something happens to Baba that makes him change his ways…
