Storyline

"Somewhere West" is a visually breathtaking road-film that explores the human spirit with emotional breadth and quiet subtlety. After battling with a terminal illness, Ian decides to forgo treatment and head West in search of solitude and a beautiful place to spend his final moments. However, despite his best efforts, Ian becomes the center of a makeshift family of troubled, but kind-hearted characters who help him in the redemptive process of letting go, opening his heart and finally reaching his undetermined destination. "Somewhere West" is a journey of forgiveness and friendship that travels 3000 miles across some of the most revelatory landscapes in the US including: Michigan's Upper Peninsula, The Badlands, Black Hills, Devils Tower, Yellowstone, Great Salt Lake and Bonneville Salt Flats. Written by David Marek

If you are in the mood for something thoughtful and real, this is a great choice. The views of national parks and monuments are a bonus.
