In "Reach" a socially awkward genius, Steven Turano (Clayton), divulges to a pro-suicide support group that he plans on killing himself. He is constantly picked-on by former childhood friend and school bully, Nick Perkins (Doww), and his widowed father, for whom he harbors a deep resentment for over his mother's death. However, when Clarence (Fiore), the new quirky kid in school, befriends him, Steven's plans are sidetracked and he reaches beyond his comfort zone to form stronger relationships with his father, friends and teachers.
"Reach" is a window into the private lives of both bullies and their targets, and shows how the power of one small gesture can change the course of one's life. "Reach" was awarded Best Feature Screenplay in The Hollywood & Vine Film Festival in 2015.
