Storyline

William has cystic fibrosis and is struggling to live life to the fullest, choosing to spend his time shopping for coffins. After his friend Bobby dies, William finds himself in a lawyer's office trying to understand the ludicrous conditions Bobby put in his will. William is committed to driving Bobby's ashes to a healing shrine in Mexico. Along for the ride is Bobby's sister Hannah and a home-built car unlikely to go the distance. William and Hannah form a relationship along the Pacific Highway as William struggles with his declining health and the pair fight the obstacles in the path to a miracle. Written by napierslogs

Trivia

Max Theiriot plays the lead in this film, a young man with Cystic Fibrosis. In Bates Motel he plays opposite Olivia Cooke, whom plays a young girl with Cystic Fibrobis. See more »

Goofs

As Will and Hannah cross into Washington State, we see that they are on a two-lane road; and when the Mustang breaks down, they are on a very back road with no center line markings. If Will really wanted to drive right through and get to Mexico as quickly as possible, he would take BC 99 to the US border, cross at the Peace Arch crossing, and continue south, staying on Interstate 5.

Quotes

Penny: I really enjoyed your talk. Penny, pre-med.
Will Rankin: Thanks. William, pre-dead.

Small, powerful film

I saw this film recently and had the chance to meet the writer/director, Max McGuire, at the Bytowne cinema in Ottawa. It was a powerful film whose intensity sneaks up on you. The storyline was made more relevant that the director is living first-hand with CF.

It is a road trip picture with a twist at the end that I will not reveal. Unlike some other road films, it is entirely believable, including all of the characters the two leads meet along the way.

During the Q&A session after the film, it was interesting to hear about the five-year journey it took for the writer/director to complete this project. It is truly a labour of love, and this usually leads to the most worthwhile films for audiences.

It is a solid addition to the recent catalogue of sleeper Canadian films. I hope it finds an audience both here and abroad, and that this talented filmmaker will continue to evolve his craft.
