Traces of Life by Zack Smyth

The story revolves around a family, centered by overbearing and psychologically unstable mother Katherine. She is rounded out by the family patriarch Bruce who is quiet and very nervous. Hopelessly apathetic Marc play Katherine’s son, a drug dealer who gets entangled with a mysterious older woman, Sara. Sara uses odd means to attempt to reform Marc. Loud and crazy Veronica plays the daughter, who is the one who rounds out the family. Veronica and Marc have an unusual bond, formed over the years as their parents have expected more and more from them. Marc is a college dropout and Veronica is on the verge of deciding whether or not she’ll go to college at all, when something inside the family snaps. Katherine is named an unsuitable mother and Bruce can’t drum up the guts to do anything about it. The children are going to be taken away, when everyone’s true colors come out. But the happiness doesn’t last long. Soon Marc is disappearing for days on end and Veronica brings a knife into school. Will the family’s newfound attachment be able to hold up through these trying times? It is a film about, if nothing else, the expectations of parents and the mistakes of children. This movie will teach you that love can be found in the most desolate of environments and that, no matter what, there is always someone by your side, ready to stand up for you.
