Bear is a down-on-his-luck, “recovering” drug addict, whose life seemingly takes a turn for the better when he receives a surprise inheritance from his long-estranged father – a vacant, derelict house on Detroit’s eastside. In this gritty - yet heartfelt – comedy, we follow Bear on his journey and discover that things aren’t always as they appear to be, and family isn’t always something you can easily escape.
