Fresh out of prison, Dara is on a mission to scatter her mother's ashes in Lake Superior. She meets Noble, an endearing bundle of tragic flaws, and sparks fly between these two lost but likeable souls. Together they set off from Minneapolis to Duluth on what they think will be a redemptive and romantic road trip to the North Shore. They are abruptly sidetracked when Dara accidentally runs over someone on a lonely country road and wrongly takes the blame. The fatal accident was actually choreographed by Henrietta, a Kervorkian wannabe, and Dara and Noble become Henrietta's unwitting pawns.

Quirky, Honest, and vibrant
14 December 2006 | by humanityfilmsSee all my reviews

When i saw it, the screening room crackled with tension... what would happen next? Plot twists that are audacious yet play as utterly believable. That's hard to do, hats off to the director.

The Dara and Noble characters are so fully realized. I know these people, their challenges. Two misfits who find each other, take a (wild!) trip together. I've seen few films that have portrayed life's quirky confluences in such a believable manner. See this movie for an intimate, honest portrayal into fascinating characters whose "universe is about to explode". Vibrant storytelling.

where's the DVD version? Dave
