When high school dropout Maria Coughlin announces her pregnancy to her parents, her father drops dead on the floor. Her mother kicks her out of the house and her boyfriend dumps her, so Maria is left alone and homeless. This is when she meets Matthew Slaughter. Matthew is an educated high school graduate with a great talent for fixing electronic devices, but he can't hang on to a job because of his principled attitude towards quality. When Maria accepts Matthew's offer to help her, they begin to form a relationship with each other in which both of them begin to change.


Pretty impressive I was sitting in on a film class that my friend was taking. His film teacher decided to show them this quiet little film, made for about fivebucks. From the start "Trust" grabs you. It's smart, funny, beautiful, and very well written.I'm not going to make this a lengthy review, I'm just going to say: Don't miss it! See this movie.
