Tumbledown is a comedic love story with a serious soul about Hannah (Rebecca Hall), a young woman struggling to rebuild her life after the sudden loss of her husband, a singer-songwriter (voiced by Damien Jurado) who was just beginning to gain renown for the brilliant record he made in the woods of Maine. A brash New York writer, Andrew (Jason Sudeikis), treks up to Hannah's remote town to investigate the uncertain circumstances of her husband's death, wanting him as the centerpiece of his book about artist suicides. Over the course of a winter month spent at her lakehouse, they clash, collaborate, and strike up a connection that begins to feel strangely like love.

Bennie knows that the details of his life don’t show well. A 27 year-old college dropout with stalled ambitions, he works at an animal shelter and lives with his bullheaded older brother, Littlefield, in their old family home on Meadow Island, Maine, a house that has fallen into disrepair since their father’s untimely death several years earlier. When a massive blizzard hits one Saturday afternoon, the brothers and a crew of roughneck war-game enthusiasts decide to play paintball at the local granite quarry. Bennie accidentally falls into a gully, landing in the hospital, and wonders if his life can get any worse. But when one of the players disappears during the storm and Littlefield becomes the main suspect in the disappearance, Bennie realizes that the game might have had much higher stakes, and is forced to seriously question his loyalty to his enigmatic brother. Bennie goes looking for answers, embarking on a journey that brings him closer to a truth he may not want to discover. What he finds will change his family and his life forever.
