3 BACKYARDS is the story of three residents of the same town over the course of one apparently perfect autumn day.

Written and directed by Eric Mendelsohn, the film is an intensive study that looks deeply into the private lives of its characters as they go about their personal journeys that will eventually take them large distances from everything that is familiar.

Shot on location on Long Island, New York, Elias Koteaz plays John, a businessman who has marital problems and gets lost on a business trip in the town. Housewife Peggy (Edie Falco) gives her celebrity actress neighbour (Enbeth Davidtz) a lift that detours into unsettling territory, and a young girl (Rachel Resheff) steals her mother's jewellery that leads to repercussions.
