In the loaded clip, Holly (Roberts) is reunited with her son Ben, who is estranged from him, played by the Oscar-nominated Hedges, who unexpectedly returns home on the morning of Christmas Eve. The film is about 24 hours while Ben treats his austerity, reveals secrets and Holly's love for her son is put to the test.

The film was directed by Lucas & # 39; father, Peter Hedges, who also wrote the script, and has a supporting cast by Courtney B. Vance, Kathryn Newton and Alexandra Park. Peter previously directed "Dan In Real Life" and "The Odd Life of Timothy Green".
The younger Hedges had a busy 2017, starring "Lady Bird" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", who both received Best Picture nominations, and his schedule did not slow down quickly. Apart from "Ben Is Back", the 21-year-old actor also plays a leading role in Joel Edgerton's "Boy Erased" and the directorial debut "Mid90s" by Jonah Hill.
