The plot revolves around Joey, who reaches adolescence, forcing his father Jake to confront a complex moral dilemma. Despite being a person with a disability, Joey experiences the same sexual desires as any other seventeen-year-old boy but is unable to alleviate the resulting tension. Jake, a widower who has dedicated his life to his son, is suddenly confronted with a serious medical condition, forcing him to rely on the support of those around him, including his sister Twyla, his friend Robyn, and Joey’s best friend Rowdy. As Jake’s condition worsens, an ethical dilemma troubles the household as everyone is forced to consider the possibility of saying goodbye.

Grou most recently helmed three episodes of the TV series ‘Lupin.’ He also directed the first season of ‘À Propos d’Antoine,’ in which Julie embarks on a new relationship with Marc, finding herself entangled in an unconventional family dynamic as she assumes the role of stepmom to Antoine, a lovable young man. Grou’s credits include two episodes each of the crime drama series ‘Three Pines’ and the medical drama ‘Transplant.’

Grou directed seven episodes of ‘Vikings,’ immersing the viewers in the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok, a Viking warrior and farmer with a thirst for exploration and raiding distant shores. The filmmaker directed the 2019 crime drama movie ‘Mafia Inc,’ unraveling the tale of the Gamaches, the tailors who have been dressing the mafia family Paternò for three generations, with Vince seeking to earn his stripes by impressing the godfather.

Fraser is recognized for writing eight episodes of the TV series ‘Queer as Folk.’ The show combines bold humor and genuine emotions, depicting the lives, loves, ambitions, careers, and friendships of a group of gay men and women in contemporary Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His cinematic expertise extends to the film ‘Leaving Metropolis,’ which revolves around a renowned painter introducing a complex dynamic into a young couple’s marriage.

Toronto, the principal location of the movie, previously hosted the shooting of Nicolas Cage-starrer ‘Dream Scenario’ and Sofia Coppola’s ‘Priscilla.’
