Get lost in Staten Island with Mitch Mitchell and his Mom as they journey through an extraordinary day. After the death of his brother, Mitch must return home to accompany his mother on a day full of difficult but necessary tasks. Alternately humorous and heartfelt, the drive takes them to unexpected places, where nerves are bared, secrets revealed, and confessions made. Although he grew up in “the forgotten borough,” he finds the familiar roads hard to navigate when landmarks change.
