Storyline

Crazy Los Angeles. Work is an hour away, down a crammed six-lane freeway. It is always sunny, but the sun looks like a sickly blemish on the smog. Everyone's out to look beautiful and make money. And a kid named Rick fits right in. The Gaspé coast. Work is five minutes away on a tractor seat. When the sun shines, the ocean is set ablaze, and the scent of pine fills the crisp country air. People here just try to make ends meet, but they know how to laugh from the gut and to show each other they care. This is were Rick's father James grew up, but Rick has never been here. When Rick learns that he has inherited the ancestral farm, and that his father wants him to go to Gaspé to bury the uncle who left Rick this legacy, an extraordinary odyssey begins. Father and son start out as different from each other as Gaspé and Los Angeles, but in the process, Rick discovers manhood and James discovers fatherhood. Written by Amanda Lowe <lowe@daro-films.mc>

Awful.
1 September 2004 | by Liedna420296770See all my reviews

When I was started watching it, it seemed to be interesting the plot about the distant relationship between a father and his son, their different personalities and opposite ways of thinking, they are together for a week to find out about the inheritance of a land, the father wanted his son to learn about his family roots, but in the middle of this story, it looks like pieces of a puzzle don't match because the family story is out of time, so it becomes unreal. It's incredible that the grandfather fought in the First World War, instead the Second World War. It was a waste of time watching it. There are better movies.
