Every year for 12 years, director Richard Linklater has brought together the same actors for a unique film about family and the passing of time. We follow young Mason from the age of six until he comes of age, living with his sister and his mother, who is separated from his father. Moves, friends, the start of school, first love, the little things and the big decisions that punctuate his youth and prepare him for adulthood...
