Synopsis

25-year-old NYC filmmaker Myles Jewell is not proud of the fact that he relies on his Boston-based mother Jean to make his doctor’s appointments, keep track of his bills, and buy him new underwear. In an effort to kick-start his adulthood, Myles decides to move home for a month and call his mom by her first name. Will this experiment cause him to stop leaning on Jean or will Myles fall into the same old habits he’s trying to break?
