Based on the bestselling memoir by Stephen Elliot, this film examines the life of the once-successful author paralyzed by writer’s block and an escalating Adderall dependency.

When his estranged father returns to challenge the veracity of his memoir, Elliot must confront his past and separate fact from fiction. Director Pamela Romanowsky questions the nature of truth in this gripping and complex debut feature.
