Storyline

Rey gave up his chance at college and love to raise his young half-brother Oliver, who looks nothing like him - "same mom, different dads." But when his meth addicted mother, Lola, is released from prison determined to rebuild her family, Rey kidnaps his younger brother and escapes their desert home for the California coast, chasing the dream that he let go years ago. Lola turns to her ex-husband Bo to help find her missing boys, bringing up ghosts from their own failed relationship. With nothing but the open road ahead of them, and Lola and Bo in close pursuit, Rey and Oliver race away from a past they never wanted, towards a future that could have been. Written by Chris B.

A Good Watch.
3 December 2016 | by albereinsteinSee all my reviews

A story of two brothers whose mother is about to get out of prison after serving time for what seems to be a history of drug abuse, but the story never tells you what she really did time for. Long story short, the older son finding out his mother is about to be let out of prison, and not wanting to have anything to do with her and wanting to spare his younger brother from all the pain he suffered by his mother, decides to pack and leave right before she gets out. From there the journey unfolds of the past hurts, resentment and struggle the divided family has to deal with. I like movies like this because I too am a thirty year recovered substance abuser and now truly the know detriment it does to a family, especially when it comes to regaining trust. Anyone who has struggled with drug addiction and has been rehabilitated, will definitely enjoy and appreciate this film. Taylor Lautner and the rest of the cast gave wonderful heart felt performances. A good watch and highly recommended to mature audiences.
