When an architecture expert collapses giving a lecture in Columbus, his estranged son, Jin, comes to town to visit. Jin meets a precocious local named Casey, who has a love for design and architecture in her hometown. Jin and Casey navigate their relationships and contemplate their futures, all the while among the amazing architecture of Columbus.
The modernist buildings and sculptures become more soulful as the story unfolds around them, bonding the characters. The physical space between the structures in the scene creates hope, tension, complexity, joy and longing as the characters pass through. But in the end, just like the architects who build them, the buildings and sculptures offer a renewed sense of aspiration. The best part about this movie star is that you can meet it in person.
