Description: Harry is a 23-year-old former boy band idol who is watching his younger brother Max, 16, follow in his footsteps. Harry has detoured on his way to a Japanese concert tour to escort Max on a long-promised camping adventure to San Gabriel Mountains of Los Angeles. Their trip begins on a note of easy camaraderie but quickly turns serious as the boys discuss Harry's contradictory relationship with his family. While his alcoholism and violent temper have estranged him from his parents, they continue to be economically dependent on him. As the trip continues, Max's longing to connect with Harry both physically and emotionally grows. But even more, Max wants to bring stability to Harry's life. In an effort to create a type of alternative family for his brother, Max goads Harry to rekindle his affections for his former girlfriend, Nikki. Back from the weekend, Max realizes that he must redefine his relationship with his brother, and that only by setting boundaries can the boys grow into adulthood together.
