When Vic meets Lali, they stumble into a dysfunctional ten-year relationship that leaves him in ruins and raising a child on his own. As Vic strives to protect their daughter from the cruel truths of his relationship with her mother, he finds himself hopelessly submerged in Lali's seemingly inexplicable contradictions, and their implications concerning his own inability to move on. "Huddleston Road" is an honest, often brutal examination of the loneliness that results from our inability to truly know the people who share our lives-and about our need to reach out and try nonetheless.
