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.

Quotes

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

very good
4 March 2013 | by mstyles-624-399356See all my reviews

Quite an enjoyable movie. A spiritual adventure for a young man. It was pleasurable with it's twists and turns..This is a real movie with a plot and capable actors, unlike most of the junk that is released today. No computer generated special effects.

An honest believable plot. that gracefully reveals itself at just the right pace.

There was a hint of the supernatural, done in the way without no gimmicks. The young man was totally believable. I'm sure most viewers will relate to him in some way whether they have a life threatening illness or not. Reminded me of myself, when I would hitchhike a lot as a young man. The world was so much simpler then.

It was a work of love for the director, he gave this movie 'soul'...
