description

When Mitch (Michael Cram, FLASHPOINT, ROOKIE BLUE), a proud new father, discovers that his baby isn’t his, he leaves his small town and sets out on a journey to find answers. Meanwhile, Jackie (Sonya Salomaa, DURHAM COUNTY, WATCHMEN), the baby's mother, convinces her best friend to help her find Mitch and save their marriage. The journey they all take is a heartfelt, coming of age story through backwoods burlesque festivals and small town funeral home larceny. A heartfelt indie comedy written and directed by actor turned director Amy Jo Johnson (FLASHPOINT, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS, FELICITY), THE SPACE BETWEEN is a film about acceptance, love, and the true meaning of family.
