Annie (Faye Viviana) and Paul (Miles Cooper) have been best friends for years. When Annie discovers she may have breast cancer, she informs Paul that she wants him to raise her son Jeremy (Walt Schoen) if anything should happen to her – rather than the boy’s father. Paul, young and in love with his fast-moving gay lifestyle, is not so sure that’s he’s ready for the responsibility. How do you raise a child when you aren’t quite sure you’re a grown-up yet yourself?
Adapted and directed by Dennis Nollette from a short story by David Groff, Nobody’s Child is a touching and heartbreaking short film about family, friendship and the trials and tribulations of growing up at any age.
