Texas, Christmas 1985 – Adrian (Cory Michael Smith – 'Gotham') is home for the first time in three years having moved on from the repressed life he left behind. Between his mother’s warm affection, his father’s begrudging, stilted conversation and his younger brother Andrew’s cold shoulder, Adrian is all too aware of the impact his absence has had on them. Time to make up for lost time.
A mutual love of Madonna’s music helps the brothers to reconnect. Their relationship starts to rebuild through the joy of “ungodly” music and movies as Adrian secretly helps him rebuild his cassette tape collection recently destroyed by the local pastor.
Adrian is determined to make this visit count, 1985 will be a Christmas to remember.
