Spring Forward

Spring Forward chronicles the burgeoning relationship between a young ex-con, Paul (Liev Scheiber), and his new work partner, Murph (Ned Beatty), a veteran municipal employee facing his upcoming retirement. The firm begins the day the recently paroled Paul - jailed for holding up a Dunkin' Donuts in a moment of financial desperation - gets a fresh start with a Parks and Recreation job in a small New England town. Unfolding through seven real-time episodes set against the backdrop of the changing seasons - and shot in sequence over the course of a year - the film explores the profound way each man changes the other's perspective on life.
