About a convict -Russ Millings - who has just been released from prison after serving 20 years for possessing an ounce of marijuana. The world outside, changed beyond his recognition, seems like seen through a glass pane and moves at a different pace. He diligently fulfills his tasks, but human contact is a forgotten and scary concept to him. Still on parole and working in a burger joint, one night he finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster. Unsure of what to do, and caught between being overwhelmed by affection and panic, Russ starts to 'thaw'. He finally finds connection to another human - and himself, through this baby which is lost, cast out and ignorant of the world around her- like him. He dares to come out of his emotional shell and go on the journey to retrace his past persona from that distant time 'before' , when he was Russky: A person, a son, a man and not a subject. —Sibelle Artis
Sweet, slow emotional movie
Basically about father and son but this isn't apparent from start. Made me cry a bit. It is slowly revolving, building the character of a lost soul, good hearted ex convict Russ. He is trying to find something to hold, to anchor his life to. It is also movie about injustice of the system and life. Probably not for everyone to watch but if you know feeling of being lost and lonesome, feeling of being disconnected from parents, work and hyper motivated world then...
