About the film:
Official Selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.
Wayland has been in prison for 15 years for armed robbery. Upon his release, he returns to his blue-collar hometown and by chance reconnects with his high school girlfriend Dolores, now a single mother struggling to support her three kids, who are all named after different shades of blue. Soon after their reunion, Wayland moves in with the chaotic family and becomes a reluctant yet much-needed father figure. Struggling to pay the bills, Wayland finds himself drawn back to his old ways just as Dolores’ pre-motherhood dreams start to drift to the surface.
