Project Details

Project Title:  Crossing Tracks
Short Synopsis:  Sam and his mother have been distant since his father died. But it’s like she doesn’t even notice, or doesn’t care. Carmen still struggles to cope day-to-day. Sam feels like he’s lost both parents, and he’s hardly ever home anymore. Carmen wonders what her son does when he’s gone, but she doesn’t ask. While doing Sam’s laundry, Carmen picks up a worn baseball jersey with dark stains. Sam wears it all the time – it used to be his father’s. His nighttime activities are far from innocent and so despite Carmen’s constant scrubbing of the shirt, the dirt and blood and grime always reappears.
