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

Small, powerful film
22 August 2012 | by (Ottawa, Ontario) – See all my reviews

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.
