Storyline

Jim Arnaud, a police officer, is the only one of his siblings to attend his mother Brenda's funeral, she a CPA and former dance teacher. Jim had a difficult relationship with her growing up and wants to make it up to her by now being a good son in providing the eulogy. Jim's plans for the eulogy go slightly off the rails as his emotions take over leading to a stream of consciousness delivery about how he is truly feeling. The question becomes whether he can hold it all together for what was going to be the centerpiece of the eulogy around Brenda's favorite song, Bruce Springsteen's "Thunder Road". Written by Huggo

Wonderful

Unpredictable, Genuine and unique. A very simple film that just pulled me in further and further until I was hooked to see what would happen next.
