Rock Bottom Rise

Inspired by a true story...


After two years of boarding school, Aaron Lane returns home to his estranged father, controlling stepmother, and spoiled half-brother. All his old friends are on their way to college, and without guidance or motivation, Aaron struggles to find his path and keep his cool around his stepmom. Forced out with no place to go, he lives out of his car and works nonstop to pay for college. How can he afford rent when his car breaks down every other week, and he keeps getting sick?


Despite Aaron’s best efforts, every attempt at success meets failure, his relationships are half-lived, and homelessness takes him into the pits of despair. At rock bottom, he is completely alone, and the only person still alive he could ever count on, the girlfriend he ghosted in eleventh grade, is about to move on for good. Determined to win her back, Aaron risks everything for the slim chance of redemption and a future he can be proud of.
