Synopsis

Nathan (Nadon) is not the poster child of typical adolescence. A street hustler, he supports himself and his mother, including her heroin addiction. When she dies of an overdose on his 13th birthday, Nathan is brought to a police station where, before a social worker arrives, he runs away in search of his father.

Witnessing Nathan at the police station is Boon Palmer (Walsh), handcuffed and with problems of his own. After leaving the station he hits the highway, the trunk of his car containing large, secure packages retrieved in the night from the back of a parked vehicle.

At a roadside diner on the outskirts of town Nathan sees Boon for the first time when the apparent drifter stops for a meal. Learning that he is en route to Vancouver, Nathan resourcefully convinces Boon to take him along. On the way they drive to Boon’s hometown, which Boon left twenty years before, never looking back.

Boon is coming back to visit his dying father. While there, he runs into an old flame, Erin (Rowan), whose son Lloyd (Weller) becomes fast friends with Nathan. The events set in motion will force both Boon and Nathan to discover things about each other and about themselves that will change their lives forever.

  • 5 stars "Outstanding performance by Brandon Nadon, very surprised to see he's been in little else."
  • 4 stars "Really good movie but Mr Schultz used a sledge hammer to make his points at times when he could have let innuendo do the work. I think the very direct language at times detracted from the quality of the film. It isn't necessary be so explicit! The director may think of it as realism but one has to remember that the point of making a movie is to make money for the investors and not to feed anyone's ego trip. Still, it was a good movie and I enjoyed it. Fine acting by both Nadon and Dylan Walsh. Gave me a whole new appreciation of Walsh."
