synopsis
Most people never read those small stories buried in the middle of the newspaper, unless they have a personal connection or they become the story themselves. Young husband and father, Alex Ramos, dreams of being signed to a lucrative publishing contract. Stressed over money and a job he can't stand, Alex has a moment of clarity in which he realizes he's been neglecting his family. When a major business deal falls through, the one that was going to set his family straight, he quits his job and his nagging boss, and battles the temptation to start drinking again after 5 years of sobriety. then out of the blue, a publisher calls, offering Alex his big break. In his excitement, he rushes off to share the news with his family, but never makes it. Instead, Alex becomes one of those small stories buried in the middle of the newspaper that no one ever reads.
