When single father John (James Norton, LITTLE WOMEN) is given only a few months left to live, he attempts to find a new, perfect family for his young son, Michael (Daniel Lamont), determined to shield him from the terrible reality of the situation.

As John struggles to find the right answer to his impossible task, he comes to accept the help of a young social worker, opening himself to solutions he would never have considered.

And he finally comes to accept his anger at the injustice of his destiny, the need to share the truth with his son, and to follow the child's instincts on the biggest decision of their lives.


“The mostly low-key mode of NOWHERE SPECIAL is the right one. Norton is spectacular, but little Lamont delivers one of those uncanny performances that doesn’t seem like acting, and makes you feel for the kid almost as much as his onscreen parent does.” Glenn Kenny. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
