Antiquities Synopsis
After his father’s death, Walt (Andrew J. West) moves to his dad’s hometown in order to learn more about who his father was. Walt decides to stay with his oddball family, which makes his search for answers nearly impossible. He accepts a job in a local antique mall where his boss quickly offers him the possibility of a management position; however, a mean-spirited co-worker isn’t pleased by his new competition and proceeds to sabotage any chance Walt has at getting the job. Walt’s whole world shifts when he meets Ellie (Ashley Greene), an eccentric and crude free spirit who still manages to be irresistibly charming. Walt ends up not only finding out who his father really was, but learning more about himself than he ever thought possible.
