A terminal diagnosis leads to a journey of self-discovery in this 'moving, tremendously involving' (David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews) road comedy from writer-director Michael McGowan. Joshua Jackson gives a charming performance as Ben, an aimless young schoolteacher who learns he has cancer a few weeks before his marriage to Samantha (Liane Balaban). The fortuitous intervention of a used motorcycle and a Tim Hortons coffee cup advising him 'Go west, young man,' inspires him to set off across Canada, from Toronto to British Columbia, in search of . . . well, Ben isn‘t sure. But the characters and sights he encounters along the way -- a cancer survivor who offers marijuana and marital advice; a beautiful folk singer (Emm Gryner); the Stanley Cup; and the majestic beauty of the Canadian countryside -- make for an experience in 'which you can never feel more alive.' (Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies).
