Click.Telephoto lens. Zoom. In a shutter release millisecond, Blake's world turns upside down. The nameless woman with the snake tattoo is not just another assignment. ?That's my mom ? gasps Marissa. Click.Saturated self-portrait: Blake, nice guy, class clown, always trying to get a laugh, not sure where to focus. Click.Contrast. Shannon, Blake's GF. Total. Babe. Marissa, just a friend and fellow photographer. Shannon loves him; Marissa needs him. How is he supposed to frame them both in one shot?Click.Chiaroscuro. Lightdark. Marissa again, overexposed. Crash and burn.Talk about negative space. Click.

Synopsis:

Fifteen-year-old Blake has a girlfriend and a friend who's a girl. One of them loves him, the other one needs him.

When he snapped a picture of a street person for his photography homework, Blake never dreamed that the woman in the photo was his friend Marissa's long-lost meth-addicted mom. Blake's participation in the ensuing drama opens up a world of trouble, both for him and Marissa. He spends the next few months trying to reconcile the conflicting roles of Boyfriend and Friend. His experiences range from the comic (surviving his dad's birth control talk) to the tragic (a harrowing after-hours visit to the morgue).

In this tangle of life and death, love and loyalty, Blake will emerge with a more sharply defined snapshot of himself.

Synopsis:

In this debut, Madigan captures her photo-prone protagonist with balanced wit and seriousness as he navigates crucial moments in his adolescence. In a tangle of life and death, love and loyalty, 15-year-old Blake emerges with a more sharply defined snapshot of himself.
