Recently released from prison, a son is made to honour his newly departed mother’s final wishes and travels with his estranged father to Ireland where her ashes are to be scattered. The journey will be full of mishaps but will also act as a catalyst in the lives of the two men. Logan Lerman (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) and the Oscar-nominated John Hawkes become the ideal fellow travellers in this affectionate road movie.


ICELAND, IRELAND, USA | 2019 | COLOR | DCP | 96' | ENGLISH

Frank sets off from Alabama to fulfil his wife’s last wish, to have her ashes scattered over a remote lake in Ireland. His son, who’s just been released from prison, accompanies him, but their relationship is tense. The journey will make Frank doubt his wife’s faith, will bring a love interest of unusual impact and a knowledge they could not have imagined.

A road film and a character study about winning over your past, the strong family ties and the unexpected everyday humour which puts things into perspective and keeps us alive. Independent cinema of the best tradition, with a winning main performance by the underappreciated character actor John Hawkes. I.D.
