“Boundaries” features an award-winning, all-star ensemble cast, including Christopher Plummer, Vera Farmiga, Christopher Lloyd, Kristen Schaal and Bobby Cannavale.

Laura (Oscar-nominee Vera Farmiga) is a single mother living in Seattle, who has a constant need to put others and animals before her. When her estranged, criminally-minded father Jack (Academy Award-winner Christopher Plummer) is kicked out of his retirement home, Laura agrees to drive him down the coast to live with her sister JoJo (Kristen Schaal) in LA.

Along for the ride is her bright but troubled son Henry, and an assortment of animal charity cases. Without telling Laura, Jack convinces Henry to help him sell off his copious supply of marijuana at every stop of their journey, resulting in unexpected reunions with old friends and family. And along the way Laura finally confronts Leonard — her dead-beat ex-husband (Bobby Cannavale).

In art as in life, no two road trips are the same — that’s what makes the classic journey the most elastic of storytelling frames for comedy, tragedy, and all the stuff in between. “Boundaries” — writer/director Shana Feste’s unabashedly autobiographical portrait of her charming grifter of a dad — takes the West Coast road trip places it’s never before been.

“There’s a good reason the road trip is such an institution: The simple act of travel makes it clear that the journey is always the real destination. And the characters you meet along the way are never quite what they appear,” said Feste.

“Wonderful! The irresistible Christopher Plummer is simply great. Vera Farmiga is glorious, wry, funny, smart and very human. Not to be missed!” — Pete Hammond, Deadline
