Family Drama ‘Charcoal Skies’ Due on Digital Jan. 17 From Mill Creek

Mill Creek Entertainment will release the family drama Charcoal Skies through digital retailers Jan. 17.

In the film, single mother Deena and her 11-year-old son Justin are struggling to navigate a delicate and confusing relationship. With limited parenting skills, she tries to understand her reclusive, artistic son who wants to be the next Vincent van Gogh. He doesn’t like to associate with other kids or want to leave the solace of his bedroom. His recent diagnosis of having a schizotypal disorder (early schizophrenia) only complicates matters. Although an elderly neighbor woman provides them with solid support and guidance, their ordinary lives are difficult in the small, working-class city. Through chance encounters and tragic events, they both find meaningful connections and learn to accept themselves and each other.
