“★★★★ – Director Elfar Adalsteins executes this father-son drama with skill and tender subtlety” – The Upcoming
“John Hawkes and Logan Lerman shine in tough but tender father-son drama” – IndieWire
After being widowed, Frank Fogle reluctantly embarks on a journey to honour his wife’s last wish of spreading her ashes in a remote lake in her native Ireland and a promise of taking his estranged son Sean along for the trip.
As Sean steps out of prison the last thing on his mind is a foreign road trip with his alienated father when what he needs is a fresh start in California… After his travel plans collapse, he reluctantly accepts his father’s proposal in return for a ticket to the West Coast and a promise that they never have to see each other again.
Between a disconcerting Irish wake, the surfacing of an old flame, the pick-up of a pretty hitchhiker and plenty of unresolved issues, the journey becomes a little more than either the father or son had bargained for.
