A non-romantic true love story between a humble teacher who believes there is no such thing as a bad kid, only a bad situation, and an abused 12 year old graffiti addict who has lost faith in integrity.
Mills is a middle schooler addicted to tagging. His home life is mess with an abusive dad and a mom who doesn't believe him. His school life isn't much better. A sympathetic teacher and champion of at risk kids enters his life, Tim. And as much as Mills pulls away, he finds himself compelled to try to trust, just one more time.
The story of a young boy struggling to overcome terrible circumstances. Based on a true story and a story we have not seen before.
QUEST is a beautiful film. Amazing to learn this is the director's directorial debut as the film is deeply moving, well conceived, and beautifully executed. The performances, by actors we know and love, and actors we are just meeting in this film, are all very strong and believable. The film is incredibly visual. The world is specific and authentic.
I saw QUEST at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival and I hope more festivals and audiences will embrace this incredible film. Bravo to the writer/director, cast, crew, and all who collaborated to bring this story to life.
