What's "Lullaby" about?

Lullaby explores the power of life and the reconnections between loved ones. Estranged from his family, Hedlund's character receives word that his father has chosen to take himself off of life support. What follows is an unexpected journey of love, laughter and forgiveness.

The movie will be in theaters and available on video on demand, this Friday.
