The CDI Tribe is at it again in the dramedy ‘Best Years Gone’ – Our story follows the post glory life for middle-aged, dreamer, slacker and former race car driver Gil Gilles. After several years of destructive behavior, Gil is devoid of any real friends or family save the equally destructive ‘love of his life’ Sylvia. This challenging relationship is further strained by Sylvia’s twin daughters who have been victimized by a string of Sylvia’s past boyfriends and want no part of Gil. True love, family, forgiveness, dreams and drama all play into this quirky tale directed by Shane Hagedorn from a script by DJ Perry.
