Any Day Now weaves a narrative of love, family, and struggle as powerful as the 1970s-era true story that inspired it. When Rudy (Alan Cumming), a drag singer, discovers that his drug-addled neighbors have abandoned their mentally-challenged son Marco (Isaac Leyva), leaving him alone in their apartment, Rudy decides to take him in. As Rudy and his partner Paul (Garret Dillahunt), a local district attorney, grow closer to Marco, they realize that they can offer Marco the loving home that he never had. Any Day Now tells the story of their fight for custody against a highly discriminatory legal system, a fight which will threaten to wreck Marco’s new family life and destroy Paul’s career – or unlock doors they only dreamed could be real.
Set in Los Angeles in the late 1970s, Any Day Now portrays a struggle that still continues today. What right does the law have to legislate love? Marco “didn’t ask to be born to a junkie, didn’t ask to be different, didn’t ask for any of that.” Rudy and Paul are just doing what they can to help a young boy that they’ve come to love. At its heart, Any Day Now is a tale of love, an account of those who have love to give, and of those who desperately need it.
