Experiencing Interruptions?

Unfinished Work

Eric Chavez has a heart of gold, a magnetic personality, and a knack for telling stories—but the high-schooler and his colorful family are haunted by the shadow of a past tragedy. In this dreamlike, mostly vérité documentary, Eric serves as our guide while he dissects his past, discovers his identity as an artist, and searches for the peace that's long eluded him.
