Movie Info

When an aspiring East Coast writer becomes enamored with the pulsating energy of San Francisco's Mission District, a special friendship helps him through difficult times in this coming-of-age tale from independent filmmaker Loren Marsh. Though the West Coast lifestyle is taking a bit of getting used to for New York-born writer Marvin Raab (Chris Coburn), the transition is made somewhat more palatable by the support and friendship of his new roommate, Jay (Joshua Leonard). As quickly as Marvin is drawn into the youthful vibrancy of the artistic Mission District, his momentary illusions are soon shattered by the current flood of dotcom entrepreneurs -- whose newfound presence threatens to strip the area of its creative energy and steer the district in a more financially driven direction. When dreams die, there is new hope to be found in the waking moments, and as Marvin and Jay struggle to let go of the past, the strong bond that has formed between them helps to bring understanding and support in a time of increasing uncertainty about the future.more
