Texas-born Beau has been living on the streets as part of the Occupy New York movement for the past seven years. One morning, news reaches him that his parents have been killed in a car crash. Beau now has to return to the alienating suburbs he once fled, with an added twist of responsibility to flavour his life: he has to take care of his two teenage sisters, despite being hardly able to take care of himself. Beau finds himself caught between his solitary habits and the unwanted duties now thrust upon him. His caregiver task of looking out for his sisters in their formative years is complicated by the fact that their relationships need mending – albeit begrudgingly. Forced into an environment in which he inevitably stands out, Beau finds what he gladly left behind, as well as what and who he wishes he hadn’t let go of. Equally funny and touching, Occupy Texas is carried deftly by humane performances that let us in on the characters’ concerns and frustrations, and help this contemporary story transcend to a universal story about connecting with the people closest to us, in spite of the past and the odds.
