"The Journey" follows the unique adventures of Steve, a chronic video game addict, wasting his days away in a cloud of pot smoke and underachievement as a flunky at Target. In deep denial of his Latino heritage, Steve is locked into a life of mundane gratification. That is, until his long suffering girlfriend Rhona rocks his world by dumping him and leaving for an archaeological dig in Mexico. "Getting the boot" snaps Steve out of his comfort zone and sends him into a spiral of depression and anger. Trying to recover his emotional equilibrium, Steve hooks up disastrously with several ex-girlfriends before finally realizing that he's just lost the only woman he truly loves. Heeding the words of several impromptu mentors, Steve finally gets off his couch and heads off to Mexico in a spur-of-the-moment adventure to track Rhona down and win her back. However, Steve quickly finds himself lost and alone in a strange, magical country that is quite different from the one he's seen on TV. ... Written by Anonymous

A quality independent film

Steve (Andres Londono), a laid-back guy with no plans for the future, is awakened by the reality of losing the love of his life when girlfriend Rhona (Kazandra Santana), an archaeologist, left for Mexico. After days of despair, Steve returns to his old self and begins to track and re-acquainted with his former girlfriends. But one of them bluntly tells him who he really is and what he becomes. He then realizes that losing Rhona was the biggest mistake of his life.

Soon after, he travels on a road trip to Mexico with one purpose – to reconcile with Rhona. Three days after the trip, he suffers a car accident. Luckily, a Mexican guy and his friends help him to recovery. With enough strength, Steve takes off and eventually finds the school Rhona attended. Disappointed after being told that Rhona is on another location and with another man, Steve continues his adventure on the road. While on the road, another misfortune happens. He is robbed but he's lucky enough to find a man who assists and gives him a job. Not forgetting the sole purpose of his trip, Steve leaves with enough money on his pocket. During his journey on a private vehicle, he suffers another setback when the vehicle abandons him. Lost and desperate, a group of natives rekindle his spirit for endurance and strength.

Luck strikes and at long last, Steve finds Rhona's whereabouts. But Maurice, Rhona's avid suitor, makes his intention of reconciliation more difficult. During a conference regarding a study conducted by Maurice, Steve shows up and outsmarts Maurice, an incident that wins Rhona back in his arms.

This romantic comedy is funny with a very good stroke of cultural examination. The story is simple and honest. The character development is interesting. The acting is strong and convincing. Andres Londono and Kazandra Santana have obvious screen chemistry in the movie. The supporting cast is also well-built. Scott Marcano, who wrote (with Adriana Padilla) and directed this film, achieves remarkable execution. The scenes with the crow are captivating and the whole sequence of scenes where the lead character ends up in a whore house is authentic. On the whole, this movie is engaging and very entertaining.
