Set in Norther Ireland, Nowhere Special is an incredibly sensitive and delicate film inspired by true events, from director Uberto Pasolini (Still Life).
John, a 35-year-old window cleaner, devotes his life to raising his 4-year-old son Michael, as the child’s mother left them immediately after his birth. Their life is a simple one, made up of universal daily rituals, a life of complete dedication, and innocent love that reveals the strength of their relationship. But John only has a few months to live. Since he has no family to turn to, he will spend the days left to him looking for a new and perfect one to adopt Michael, trying to protect his child from the terrible reality.
A tender, heartfelt story of one life ending as another begins.
