The film tells a story of a divorced couple trying to raise their young son. The story follows the boy for twelve years, from first grade at age 6 through 12th grade at age 17-18, and examines his relationship with his parents as he grows.
You only witness the calmly on-going life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane). A life like most of us have experienced it. A life full of ups and downs, with its euphoric moments and sad moments.
Tommy (Ethan Hawke) and (Mom) Patricia Arquette are Mason's parents who are there for the journey, making mistakes as they learn and growing older. The director's daughter plays Mason's older sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater).
