19 year-old Ben Burns (Lucas Hedges, MANCHESTER BY THE SEA) unexpectedly returns home to his family's suburban home on Christmas Eve morning.

Over a turbulent 24 hours, new truths are revealed, and a mother's undying love for her son is tested as she does everything in her power to keep him safe. BEN IS BACK also stars Courtney B.
