Family Obligations | The Blessing and the Curse


Family Obligations

In trying to settle affairs after his father’s sudden death, Peter Steele finds himself the unlikely caretaker of his long-forgotten Uncle Frank. As Peter shuffles Frank to and from doctors, he meets neighbor Melanie, a single mother who shows him how to look for opportunities instead of excuses in the people in his life. Through ups and downs, lighthearted moments and devastating news, Peter begins to see that relationships might just be worth the effort after all.



The Blessing and the Curse

The Blessing and the Curse is the surprising and inspiring story of local folk, Americana, and rockabilly musician Lance Canales, who rose from humble California Central Valley farmworker beginnings to prominence in the international music scene. It’s also the story of the curious and tremendous popularity of Americana music abroad in today’s political climate.
