OUR FIRST GOODBYE (2006)

SYNOPSIS

Thomas Hart was recently sentenced to 15 years in prison for white-collar crimes. With the help of his two best friends, Hart spends his day making a video about his life so that his soon-to-be-born daughter, Mia – a daughter he fears he may never get the chance to meet – may know something about her father. As Hart’s last free day winds down, we see him clash and come together with friends and family, take responsibility for his actions and ultimately gain a greater appreciation for his roots, even as they are about to be ripped out.
