(2022) (Charlie Rowe, Marcia Gay Harden) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A young quadriplegic ends up bonding with his capuchin service animal who helps bring him out of his depression.
Nate Gibson (CHARLIE ROWE) is about to head off to college when he's struck down by meningitis after jumping into a deep body of water in North Carolina. All of that is devastating for his parents, Claire (MARCIA GAY HARDEN) and Dan (JIM BELUSHI), and siblings, Katy (JOSEPHINE LANGFORD) and Annabelle (HANNAH RILEY), along with their grandmother, Mama Blanche (DIANE LADD).
Four years later, Nate is a depressed quadriplegic whose state has put an emotional drain on him and his entire family. But things change when he's introduced to Gigi, a previously rescued capuchin monkey that's been trained as a service animal. She's initially shy around Nate and his family, but eventually comes around and bonds with him, including helping him get through his arduous physical therapy.
But when animal activist Chloe Gaines (WELKER WHITE) spots them together in a grocery store and after Nate sneaks off to a party with Gigi and ends up trending on social media, their time together becomes increasingly uncertain.
