Adolescence is not a very pleasant thing. And when a teenager’s life begins to crumble, what does he intend to do? Mellisa B. Miller tried to tell us about this in her film.

The very release date of the film "All These Small Moments" is scheduled for January 17, 2019 in the United States by Orion Classics.
All these small moments
Producer: Melissa B. Miller
World Premiere: April 24, 2018
The film was attended by: Brendan Meyer (Howie Sheffield), Molly Ringgood (Carla Sheffield), Jemima Kirk (Odessa), Harley Quinn Smith (Lindsay) and others.
The scene was filmed in New York City, which shows “all these little moments”: familiar neighborhoods and street corners that expand and change along with the main character.
The plot of the film tells about life problems on the way of a teenager.
Howie, who is just going through a transitional age, had a difficult year. He broke his arm, and in addition, the marriage of his parents Carla and Tom is in danger of destruction: they are constantly arguing with each other, so that these disputes penetrate the walls of their Brooklyn mansion. Howie himself and his brother Simon do not want to notice this, but they feel the severity of family strife.
The only thing that supports and gives consolation to Howie is the mysterious 30-year-old woman of Odessa, whom he sees every day during his daily trip to school and which he has never spoken to before. She is so attractive that Howie seems like she always shines in the warm halo of sunlight. To attract her attention, he tries to stand out from the crowd, dressing differently, composes poems about her, tries to pursue her, and also compiles a list of whether the actions that he performs really work. And so, all the teenager’s worlds begin to collide with each other when Odessa enters into his circle of contacts, when parents think whether to stay together or not, and when Howie makes friends with his attractive classmate Lindsey.
