SYNOPSIS

“Maverick” comes home to the Bronx, after twenty-one years. Suffering from the traumas of abuse and neglect, that go hand-in-hand with our American prison systems, he's become a loner, hardened over his lengthy sentence. Layers of frustration and fear, lie underneath his heavy penetrating stare. He’s a changed man figuring out his place in a family he barely remembers, while dealing with the pressures of a changed world and a twenty-one-year-old daughter he doesn’t know.
