Jimmie Fails (Jimmie Fails) crashes on his friends' couches, but dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built with his own hands in 1946, in the heart of San Francisco. Jimmie grew up in the house, which his father inherited, but then lost. When the house is temporarily abandoned, Jimmie makes his move. He squats in the house, making it a sanctuary for himself and his best friend Mont (Jonathan Majors).

Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

  • 1 star "Guess it was suppose to be some type of art piece. Story line went no where, direction slow and boring. Wanted to walk out halfway thru and should have. Understand what they may have wanted to portray but didn’t work. Waste of time !!!"
  • 3 stars "Too Little 2 Late--I lived in the Fillmore/Post area doing the mid/Late 50s and early 60s... believe me "The Point" was not a place to be "Colored" yes we were colored, teenagers from "the Filthy Mo!" and we stayed away from "The Point"! Film is "a tad unrealistic". to say the least!"
