A Passage of Time
Director: Bill Humphreys
“A Passage of Time” is is the story of two young men who want to open that bed and breakfast in their home along the coast of Maine. But they come to realize, however, that there are other family dynamics they didn’t foresee that need to be addressed. It’s the story of how families must cope as one generation gives way to another and how the rules of life must adjust as the change takes place.
