Tucked and Folded Away

Ryan and Stacie want a simple life; settle into a home, start a family. Unfortunately, their parents expect them to go to school and get established before making any big commitments.

One evening after dinner the two begin a cerebral journey to find what they are looking for.

Director’s statement

James McLellan says:

Tucked and Folded Away is about growing up and staying young. I wanted to make a film that inspires people to find their own way in life rather than any prescribed formula. To see that there are opportunities if one wants to find them.

It’s a reaction to the many lost souls I have witnessed as a teacher. Students graduating high school, heading out into the world, wide eyed, paralyzed and directionless.”
