Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleason) is an eccentric small-town cop with a confrontational and crass personality and a subversive sense of humor. A longtime policeman in County Galway, Boyle is a maverick with his own moral code. He has seen enough of the world to know there isn't much to it and has had plenty of time to think about it. When a fellow police officer disappears and Boyle's small town becomes key to a large drug trafficking investigation, he is forced to at least feign interest when dealing with the humorless FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) assigned to the case. -- (C) Sony Pictures

Mary has become so "90210" she refuses to admit she is of Mexican descent. When dad suddenly passes away, their posh lives are turned upside down. They discover they have been left penniless and are forced to move into their estranged aunt Aurelia's (Adriana Barraza) modest but lively home in the Latino-centric Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. They are terrified to leave their world of privilege; neither Nora nor Mary speak Spanish or have ever had to take on actual responsibility. The girls gradually adapt to their new environment; their BMW and Prius are traded for the public bus and a used car. As they embrace the culture that for so long they refused to accept, they both discover romance, the true meaning of family, and they learn that the life of PRADA actually means NADA without love, family and community.

Renowned theologian and author of more than 30 books, Father Thomas Keating is one of today's most influential spiritual leaders and is widely recognized for his ecumenical approach to spirituality. Working with a top notch creative team, filmmaker Peter C. Jones has created a soulful, reflective portrait which interweaves extensive conversations with Father Thomas (who is also his uncle), historical footage and interviews with His Holiness the Dalai Lama; Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of the Masjid al-Farah Mosque in New York; Rabbi Lewis Bogage, formerly of the Central Synagogue of New York City; Abbot Joseph Boyle of St. Benedict's; Abbot Damian Carr of St. Joseph's. The film traces Father Keating's spiritual journey from an affluent, New York City childhood, to an austere Trappist monastic life, to his rise through the Order, and his election as Abbot of St. Joseph's Abbey in 1961. In the early 1970's Father Thomas introduced Eastern religious practices to the monks and became one of the originators of Centering Prayer. In 1984, he founded Contemplative Outreach to bring Centering Prayer to a worldwide audience. For those who encounter him, his example is an enlightening modern journey of profound faith.

It is a journey of self discovery where a man takes a truth to himself...
