James White (Christopher Abbott) is in his early 20s and drifting through New York. His life consists of parties, drugs, alcohol and chance sexual encounters. After binges, he often lies around for days recovering on his mother's couch. James' mother is recuperating from cancer and seems to be well on the way to recovery. But then she has a major relapse and the pressure on James increases: either he pulls himself together and at last takes on some responsibility -- or he carries on as before, with the risk that he will ruin his life completely. James White
is a powerful, raw family drama that won the Next Winner audience prize at this year's Sundance Festival.
