Everything is on autopilot. A bicycle propels forward with no rider and adolescent boys make internet videos. At home, Mark’s family drifts in isolation, escaping the lazy afternoon, when reality circles back.
Evoking Larry Clark’s Kids in both ambience and style, this short drama from indie director J.B. Herndon looks at the carefree, often reckless spirit of early adolescence through a simple yet light-hearted storyline. Bottom line: sometimes knowing when to put on autopilot can save your life!
