Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Connelly
On a dangerous curve, late at night, the unthinkable happens. A boy, releasing a jar full of lightening bugs, becomes the victim of a fatal hit and run. At the point of impact, the lives of both Ethan (Joaquin Phoenix) and Dwight (Mark Ruffalo), two fathers on opposite sides of the incident, are sent into shambles. While each reacts differently to what has happened, both struggle to understand and cope with the emotional turn of events as they each are forced to accept the truth.
