SJ Chiro's astonishingly beautiful coming of age story, Lane 1974, is in selected theaters across the US, distributed by Orchard, available on Amazon, iTunes, and more. 13-year-old Lane (Sophia Mitri Schloss) and siblings do their best to survive the unpredictable, unsettled life imposed by an unruly, irresponsible mother as they dispatch from commune to commune in the mid 70's.
