Rogers Park (2001)

Rogers Park is an evocative, slice-of-life tale about what happens when a lonely boy, a dying woman and a searching man meet.

The film follows the lives of three people living in a Chicago neighborhood: Boy a latchkey kid, Woman who is too ill to eat and
Man who is desperately looking for his cat. It explores the intimate and distant spaces between them when they eventually convene under the most precarious of circumstances.
