Emotionally stifled, socially awkward Al Fountain is an ordinary man supervising a contruction job in the Midwest. When the job is cancelled, Al decides not to go home, but instead to revisit a childhood lake. After a disappointing visit to the now polluted lake, he stops to help a young drop-out named Kid, whose car has broken down. The two warm to each other and together they embark on various impulsive adventures. "We're so used to boilerplate entertainment and so inundated by movies that trigger our response in deliberate, predictable ways, that a film as loose and thoughtful as BOX OF MOONLIGHT feels like a gift." Edward Guthmann, San Fransisco Chronicle
