In this unconventional road trip movie, Frank Fogle (John Hawkes) 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 (Logan Lerman), 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. What he needs is a fresh start in California. But when 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.
Their odyssey takes us from Alabama to the winding roads of Ireland as they scatter their mother’s ashes – and first-time director Elfar Adalsteins captures it all with such fresh eyes.
