LOGLINE: A recovering heroin addict and estranged brother, father, and son, moves back to his hometown for a fresh start. He must survive a tragic loss and overcome his addiction to see his girls again.
PLOT SUMMARY: Small towns and heroin have one thing in common: Duncan always seem to come back to them. It’s difficult to escape, and he hates himself for leaving as much as returning. Six months ago, Duncan lost everything in Houston: tenured professor track, relationship with his bruised-up sister Jessie and faux posh parents Martha and Ronald, and visitation rights to see his girls on weekends. Now, Duncan’s commitment back home in Prosper, TX is a weekly routine of probation hearings, Narcotics Anonymous meetings, teaching at a local community college, and infant birthday parties. ‘Lily is Here’ is the story of a man that lives for nothing, and the hardest lesson learned through the most tragic family loss.
