Synopsis

“You can’t always get what you want.” Redwood (Ryan Grantham) is a child of the 1970s, born to hippie parents who, at this film’s beginning, tearfully separate at the US-Canada border. Taken to Canada by his dope-dealing dad (Chad Willett), our young protagonist has his life turned upside-down just as he reaches adolescence: a drug bust leaves him consigned to America, and the care of his long-absent mother (Jennifer Copping). Stuck with a hostile new family, Redwood has to make the most of a hard situation. What keeps him going is his obsession with golf, which is kept alive by some help from a grizzled old codger (Scott Hylands), who may be a certifiable loony or, just perhaps, the sanest character in the movie.
