What do you do when the best and the worst moment of your life happens at the exact same time? Henry (Zach Braff, Scrubs, Garden State) is not a particularly nice guy. He is a drug dealer because he is good at it. Nathalie (Isabelle Blais, Human Trafficking) is a beautiful young woman, married and about to have her first child. One night, Henry makes a wrong turn and their lives tragically collide. As Natalie s life unravels, Henry becomes her unlikely guardian angel - compassionate, charming and some much-needed calm in the storm of her life. She finds a welcome relief in the tall, rumpled stranger that seems only too willing to offer her refuge. But Henry has his own problems. His past misdeeds are catching up to him and he soon discovers that he is no longer able to outrun his past or his present. The inevitable impact of his choices forces both Henry and Nathalie to confront loss, love and life, and to ultimately decide whether the high cost of living is worth the price.

Braff plays an American expatriate making ends meet by illegally dealing prescription medication to unsavory clients. Blais is a pregnant woman anticipating the birth of her first child. One night, an accident caused by Braff brings them together even as Blais is unaware that he is the culprit. Reeling in the aftermath, Blais becomes distanced from her husband. Meanwhile Braff, wracked by guilt, unexpectedly finds himself drawn into her world. The two form an unlikely bond of friendship and compassion. The movie plays largely as a burgeoning romance--although it is a chaste relationship in which both participants are battling personal demons. At some point, both will have to confront the truths inherent in their lives and deal with the fateful night at the heart of the story.Read more ›
I found him to be totally real, he was able to make me feel who he was and what he was feeling and cry with him.
That is a rare gift. I look forward to seeing his future work, he has genuine talent.
*I would suggest it may not be for someone who is pregnant because it is kind of disturbing.
Props to the actors for making such a wonderful film.
I could feel the anger, the out of control, the tension,the pain, the LOSS And The Hard Decisions.
Such a relate able movie on so many different levels. Best Movie I have seen in a long time.
