Storyline

A city faced with unimaginable tragedy rallies around a most unlikely hero. A timeless story about healing and finding purpose in life. There is no road map for living through a traumatic event. It's different for everyone who experiences it, and at some point, it's something we all go through. Feeling lost, hopeless, and depressed comes with the territory, as if no other person in the world could understand your pain. This is a story of a community finding meaning when their lives are forever altered. In the wake of the 2013 bombings, Boston blooms again on Patriot's Day with its newest tradition - the Boston Marathon Daffodils. One man with a camera and an editing system follows one daffodil bulb's adventure from the soil in the Netherlands, across the Atlantic, into a MA greenhouse, and onto the finish line of the Boston Marathon. A zen story of purpose, healing, community, and love, as told by the people who experience it. Everything has a journey. Written by MJP

Path of the Daff is an absolutely beautiful documentary about how a terrible event can bring out our most generous and human traits. We watch a community of people in Boston stand together to support each other in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings; and how something as simple as a daffodil became a surprising representation of our city's resiliency. As a Bostonian myself, I remember when the daffodils appeared in the city and lined the streets of the Back Bay. I felt moved by power they had to lift our spirits up. Now that I know the journey of these daffodils, having watched this film, I have a deeper appreciation of the people behind this project. Path of the Daff is funny, heartwarming, and beautiful to watch. It captures the essence of Boston and its people. Thank you to the film makers for sharing this with us. I love this documentary.
