Synopsis
Inspired by the true story of director/writer David M. Rosenthal, Janie Jones follows rocker Ethan Brand (Alessandro Nivola), whose former flame (Elisabeth Shue) drops a 13-year-old (Abigail Breslin) in his lap, with the surprise news that she is his daughter. Far from knowing how to be a father, Ethan takes Janie on the road, but his self-destructive spiral threatens both the group’s future and any chance at a relationship with his own child. Desperate to revive his failing career, Ethan learns of Janie’s own musical talent, and their bond over that slowly leads him down the path to redemption.
