Description

They are all works in progress.

Ray, a thirty-eight-year-old teacher turned jungle-gym architect, spends his days smoking weed and sleeping. He tells his wife, Priya (Navi Rawat, Numb3rs) that he’s “working.” But she does not see building supplies, only sketches of his yet-to-be-constructed projects. However, when her father, Ashok, moves in after years without communication, things start to change. Like Ray, Ashok, is a man lacking purpose and ignoring obligations. However, when he’s not guzzling red wine before noon, he acts as a part-time marriage counselor for the married couple. He hopes to mend the unraveling threads in both his life and theirs with his words. But he will have to confront his past mistakes and somehow motivate Ray to quickly clear the air before everything comes undone.

– Jade Estrada
