Daniel's Background: After losing his beloved girlfriend on 9/11, Daniel, a blocked writer, appears to have started a whole new life with his wife Reena, but remains haunted by a love he can't shake and questions he can't answer.
You're asking for another miracle?
I don't think there's gonna be one left for you.
Director on Jeremy/Daniel: "Jeremy has been through family issues that aren't terribly far from his character in the movie. He was able to deeply access the complicated emotions Daniel has with his wife and daughter. I met Jeremy because I fell in love with his musical DRIFT. He's the first performer I brought on board and he played for an early fundraising event. He's an incredibly masculine songwriter and performer but had never really acted before. As an interesting side note, the woman who plays Jeremy's deceased girlfriend in the film is his real-life wife, Sarah-Jane Casey."

Of DRIFT, Charles Isherwood of the New York Times stated: "The score was assured and appealing…reminiscent of Jonathan Larson and Billy Joel."
