Description by OLDIES.com:
Rachel Griffiths and newcomer Jonan Everett star in the story of a counselor and the troubled inner-city teenager she is trying to help, both of who are at turning points in their lives. Angel acts out by stealing, lying, fighting with his father, and undermining every opportunity he is given, and seems headed for the streets. Taking place on a single pivotal day, the film challenges commonly accepted beliefs about altruism.
Golden-Globe-winning actress Rachel Griffiths (SIX FEET UNDER) plays Nicole, a counselor who has opened her home to a troubled teen named Angel (Jonan Everett). Nicole and Angel's lives are in flux. Nicole has just learned she's pregnant, and she's not sure where she stands in her relationship with her husband. Meanwhile, Angel's father has recently kicked him out of their New York City apartment for his bad behavior. When reconciliation with his father seems impossible, Nicole has to consider how long the arrangement can last. This thought-provoking drama from director Jim McKay raises the question of how people can affect their destiny through their actions.
