Watch the trailer. Title: Songs for a Sloth When Maxwell's father wanted him to give up his dream of being a songwriter and embrace a life of conventional responsibility, he did. Years later, after his father's death, Maxwell is no less in thrall by him. And after being visited by a talking animal in a dream, he becomes convinced that he must fulfill his father's last wish - the saving of a habitat for a rare species of the North American Sloth. He enlists his brother and sister to help raise money and, after the trio discover a trove of paintings secretly created by their late father over his final years, he returns to songwriting as a means to bring attention to their cause. But just as the siblings are becoming closer and Maxwell is growing freer, his obsession over being the son his father wanted threatens to destroy the whole endeavor. Songs for a Sloth is a film about the struggle to be both the person we want to be and the person we feel responsible to be.
While creating viral content to promote his fundraising efforts proves difficult, the real challenge becomes securing the help of his flighty brother and self-involved sister before developers take over the land. Maxwell meets a talking sloth in his dreams. The chatty sloth wants Maxwell to write him a song, something that can go viral and raise awareness - aka money - to save his habitat. It's also about literal dreams, paintball, digging up dead family pets, spreadsheets, sibling rivalry, texting hats, and fancy banquets. In the end, Maxwell will need to learn from the sloth that getting to your passions slowly is better than not getting to them at all.
