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

My friend died at 23 from cystic fibrosis
8 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

My buddy Brent Peterson died from cystic fibrosis at 23. This movie was right on the money regarding all elements. I saw Brent in William. I saw Brent during the drinking scenes, the tapping of the body to have the mucus move around in order to breathe, the first pill scenes, his one love before he passed, his thirst for adventure, having awesome parents.

The final scene was moving and full of appreciation that I have lived into my 30s and the road ahead looks interesting.

Brent never asked for sympathy or your help -- he was a surfer, an individual, a funny guy who would always be down to go out and have a beer. The writer for this movie did a flawless job.
