Synopsis

An arrogant Hollywood talent agent, Josh Ross is sent to Guatemala to find two-time Oscar winner actor Jack Palladin. Although they'd never met, the search is emotionally complicated as the long-time retired star was once married to Josh's late mother. The young agent's contempt for the 'old' actor mirrors his comedic distaste for the local community whose help he desperately needs to find him. Josh’s hope for a quick and lucrative deal turns into a soul-searching journey. The retired star and his stepson must confront the past they had forsaken.
