Stuff is an intimate and unflinching examination of fathers and sons. It interweaves the stories of two men, the filmmaker and his friend Phil, a carpenter, after the deaths of their fathers. The filmmaker attempts to understand his father and himself through a storage unit full of the stuff his father left behind, while Phil seeks to overcome years of pent-up anger as he drives his father's ashes to Iowa for burial next to his father’s mother.

Part road movie, part meditation, Stuff finds true moments of illumination in its search for the meaning of what it is to be a son and a father. Stuff will include live action and animated

"There is a vogue of late involving filmmakers who use themselves as subjects. These films often don't make the necessary, transcendent leap to be about something beyond the artist. I'm happy to say that Larry Johnson's wonderful new film Stuff is so resolutely and unflinchingly about himself that he bravely uncovers hard and basic truths that apply to all of us. Johnson is that rare filmmaker who uses the self to reach the Self."
Brian Lindstrom, filmmaker - OLD TOWN DIARIES, FINDING NORMAL

"Larry Johnson has made a very personal, touching and often funny film about his unresolved relationship with his dead father and the mysteries uncovered when he inherits box after box of his dad's meticulously organized "stuff." As we learn about Larry's father, we begin to see that the film is as much about the filmmaker and his own foibles as it is about dad. A very brave, passionate, and creatively executed memoir that wrings recurrent and universal questions about childhood, family life and the experience of "becoming a man" from the recollections, emotions and detritus of very specific lives."
Jim Blashfield, filmmaker - SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES
