T.J., a young student photographer, chronicles the break-up of his family after his mother walks out. The demise of the family and its devastating effect are captured in dramatic and photographic flashbacks. T.J. tries to make sense out of all this, but no one is willing to talk or to listen: not his mother, his girlfriend, or teacher. Using his photographs, he reflects, All Art is enlightening. But does it have to be so painful?
