Mical Trejo, Macy Butler (photo by Bret Brookshire)Lucas has amassed the coveted middle-aged-man spoils: an adoring wife, a devoted son, a successful-but-not excessive career. His return to his hometown for professional recognition promises to be a well-earned victory lap.

Emily seeks solitude and relief from the weight of the world hoisted on her 17-year-old shoulders. Her impulsive retreat to a deserted bridge seems like a passable, if not ideal, solution.

When they intersect on the footbridge Lucas designed, Emily and Lucas are forced to resolve the impasse by confronting past traumas and fading dreams.
