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

Goofs

As Will and Hannah cross into Washington State, we see that they are on a two-lane road; and when the Mustang breaks down, they are on a very back road with no center line markings. If Will really wanted to drive right through and get to Mexico as quickly as possible, he would take BC 99 to the US border, cross at the Peace Arch crossing, and continue south, staying on Interstate 5.

Penny: I really enjoyed your talk. Penny, pre-med.

Canadian Will Rankin (Max Thieriot) has cystic fibrosis. He spends his days test driving coffins, speaking to med students, and pounding his chest to loosen the mucus. He makes it to his 21st birthday with limited fanfare. His CF friend Bobby dies and asks him in the will to drive his ashes to a healing shrine in Mexico. Along for the ride is Bobby's sister Hannah Crane (Laurence Leboeuf).

This is essentially a road movie with a compelling devastating disease. As with most road movies, they need a good central relationship and a series of intriguing yet comedic situations along the way. I really like the coffin shopping and crazy aunt Juliette Lewis. It would be great to have more of the little snippets of that calibre. As for the central relationship, the two leads are fairly interesting. I really like Thieriot in this. The relationship could do more developing if they get together earlier. Otherwise, I'm fine with their light touch. Overall, I like the characters and I like their journey.
