I may not have given this enough time, but I found it boring.

Through flashbacks, we learn how a somewhat narcissistic young man chose his potential music career over family and when his life was somewhat in shambles he sought to determine if that had been an incorrect choice. The interactions between he and his very young daughter were very moving. I would have liked the film more if there had been a little more time spent viewing this interaction rather than his destructive or senseless behavior. Maybe it was too difficult to film with the young child actor.
