A Slice of Pie
A Slice of Pie is an intimate look at a modern family living through the continually changing lives of three active teenagers and an eighteen year marriage. Jake and Penelope, both academics, are getting ready to write their own thicket into empty nest nirvana. While their kids; Huck, Levi, and Louisa are navigating their teen years. When Penelope is diagnosed with cancer the kids are propelled into more adult choices as they deal with a sick parent. Just as Penelope and Jake's life slows to the process involved with her treatments and doctors appointments. Quietly, as the days fall into each other, they lose an essential part of their marriage. Shaken out of their silent daze by their children's lives, they fall in and out of small habits they used to enjoy.
