What happens after you've slept with all the girls, played all the shows, and done all the drugs, but you're still not famous? If you're Drew, you go to law school. But when a bicycle accident lands Drew in a coma, his mom, his former drummer, and the girls he could have loved converge around his hospital bed. Can they move forward from past disappointments, or will those fractures stay broken?

Written by Pavement Group Associate Mallery Avidon, breaks & bikes examines the unexpected events that force us to look up from our phones and rediscover the people who have ended up in our lives.
