A thoughtful exploration about finding oneself, learning to hope after loss, and recognizing the role that family, friends, and even strangers can play in the healing process if you are open and willing to share your experience with others.
It has been two years since his mom's death, and Jamison, his dad, and his younger sister seem to be coping, but they've been dealing with their loss separately and in different ways. When Jamison has to be reminded of his mother's birthday, on the day
of her birthday, he worries that his memory of her is slipping away, and he is forced to reckon with the passing of time. To help make sense of it, he picks up his camera--the Nikon his mother gave him a few years back.
Jamison begins to take photos of ordinary people on the street, at the same time and place each night. As he focuses his lens on the random people who cross his path, Jamison begins to see the world in a deeper way. His endeavor turns into a school project, and then into something more. Along with his new outlook, Jamison forges new and unexpected friendships at school. But more importantly, he's able to revive the memory of his mother, and to connect with his father and younger sister once again.
