Set in the height of the 1990's grunge rock scene, Rearview tells the story of an aging and drug addicted rock star that is on his way out of both the music scene and life itself.

As he makes preparations to end his life, he begins to reminisce about a recent encounter with a young girl named Heather. In this encounter, he makes an unexpected human connection as well as comes to realize that he may have a second chance at life.

As he comes closer to ending everything, he begins to second guess his view on life, as well as see Heather as a way out of his current plight.
