A Lifetime Later

Adrienne Levy, dir. (11 min) Wednesday 1:30 pm; Friday 10:00 am coffee break

Joe and Amy Buckley live in a small working class neighborhood with their seven-year-old daughter, Lisa. When Amy is diagnosed with advanced cancer, Joe begins to buy medical marijuana to help her cope. When they discover how effective the marijuana is for Amy’s cancer, they begin to make weed brownies and distribute them to other families in need of an alternative way to alleviate the suffering. One night, a stranger breaks into their house to steal the drugs. Terrified, seven-year-old Lisa makes a call to 911. She doesn’t know that phone call will be the worst mistake of her life. Lisa’s family is torn apart and, twenty years later, that night still haunts her, in the important film, A LIFETIME LATER.
