The Pavilion

The Pavilion

by Craig Wright
Directed by Jeremy Skidmore

From the Emmy nominated writer of Six Feet Under. Peter (Chris Payne Gilbert) returns to his twenty-year high school reunion with dreams of winning back Kari (Leslie Murphy), the girl he left behind after an unexpected pregnancy ended their relationship.
