While the SXSW Film Festival sometimes earns headlines for the genre fare that makes waves with the audiences that flock to Austin each year, it's a place where strong dramas and unique stories can also unspool. And this year filmmakers Josh Barrett and Marc Menchaca are hoping their feature effort "This Is Where We Live" will resonate in the Narrative Feature competition slot.

While the SXSW Film Festival sometimes earns headlines for the genre fare that makes waves with the audiences that flock to Austin each year, it's a place where strong dramas and unique stories can also unspool. And this year filmmakers Josh Barrett and Marc Menchaca are hoping their feature effort "This Is Where We Live" will resonate in the Narrative Feature competition slot.

If Menchaca's name or face seem familiar to you (he also takes a role in 'TIWWL') you may recognize him as Lauder Wakefield, the disabled, alcoholic vet who went up against Brody in the second season of "Homeland." But here he has a wholly different part as Noah, a small-town handyman who becomes a caregiver to August, a young man with cerebral palsy (Tobias Segal). It's not the most likely of pairs, but as you'll see in this exclusive clip, August's sister Laney (Frankie Shaw), shows how they can better connect.

It looks like a compelling, intimate drama and if you're at SXSW, the film premieres on Saturday, March 9th at the Alamo Ritz at 11 AM. Watch below.
