Storyline

"Destination Anywhere" is a contemporary film noir set on the streets of a gritty, yet colorful Manhattan neighborhood. Jon Bon Jovi stars as JON, a man on the run from his home, his gambling debts, and his marriage. He is summoned back to New York to deal with his emotionally estranged wife, JANIE, and emergency room nurse who has never fully recovered from the hit-and-run death of their only child several years ago. Jon returns to chaos, Janie is out of control and his debts have caused his life to be in danger. He struggles to cope with the troubles at home, but has built walls that are too thick to penetrate and the problems only escalate between Jon and Janie. When an abandoned baby is found in a dumpster and brought to the hospital where Janie works, a series of events is set in motion that forces the couple to reassess the terms of their love, responsibility and commitment to one another.

Quotes

Janie: I never imagined she would be so perfect. That every day, I would glimpse another miracle. She makes me humble. The way her eyes gleam like the moon in negative. The way her body reaches out to the world, eager to touch and smell and taste every part of it. She trusts completely as if the whole world were as full of love as she is. And I want so much to make that true for her.

very emotional movie! a loved it. at the beginning it was a bit confusing, but i really enjoyed it all. Jon Bon Jovi was perfect in this film. and the music was perfect, sometimes it looked like a music clip. the plot is a bit depressing ... very touching ... i would watch it 10 times and i will never get tired of it. i like movies when the plot is very mysterious, when you think what happened in some parts of the movie, and this short movie is just like this. especially i recommend this short movie to all JBJ fans, he looks nice in this movie and proves that he can actually act, and his music really fits for this movie..just great... 10/10
