Storyline

After being widowed, Frank Fogle reluctantly embarks on a journey to honor 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. 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. 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 father and son had bargained for.

An underrated gem
14 May 2020 | by patientjoelSee all my reviews

Wow, what a roller-coaster of emotions. This movie had me laughing and crying along with it. I was going to say, 'laughing and crying in equal measure', but in truth, the laughing outweighed the crying. Only the ending drew tears from me.

It had a haunting soundtrack, two of the songs in the movie - one very old, one modern - will stay with me for a long time.

It's a story of dysfunctional families, disenfranchised youth and hidden pasts.

Well worth the watch, in my opinion, doubt you'd be disappointed.
