What Matters begins life as a mundane film. Just another filmaker on an ordinary adventure. Some new premise for drawing viewers into an unfathomable goal. But along the way, and literally quite by accident, the storyline becomes inspired. The inspiration achieves a crescendo at the end, when even this 60 year old viewer is reexamining the purpose of his life, wondering what I might have done differently, and perhaps more poignantly, impressing on me what I still can do... and must do.
