Storyline

The day he receives his driver's license back following a six month suspension for reckless driving, nineteen year old Joe Spring, with his parents' reluctant blessing, leaves their Aldergrove, British Columbia home on Friday night following work for the several hours drive to Quesnel, British Columbia for a party, he stating that he will be home on Monday. He promises to telephone his mother, Teresa Spring, once he arrives in Quesnel the following morning. But she never receives the telephone call, he doesn't answer her repeated calls, and subsequently she receives a call from Joe's stoned friend Eric in Quesnel stating that Joe never made it to the party. Teresa feels the need to do something to locate Joe, which is made all the more difficult because of husband Tim Spring's more relaxed attitude thus far about Joe's whereabouts. Tim, who has been out of work now for several years, has basically shut down in life, which has affected his relationship with his entire family. The ... Written by Huggo

I don't think the story itself was that remarkable, so they had little choice but to pad it out. Unfortunately, it drifted off into so much fiction, it left little but the main concept (boy stranded for 8 days) of the actual story.

In response to the other reviewer who said the weather was warm there, it dropped to 2C (nearly freezing) at night, according to the CBC news account.

I would like to have seen more of young man's struggles during this time. The bears and wildlife would have been an interesting element to add.
