    Drama

    She just found out that her cancer is terminal. He just got out of prison and desperately needs some money. He is hitchhiking through Texas to pursue his passion. They have nothing in commnon, besides having nothing left to lose. For this reason and a couple of dollar bills, these three people embark on a journey together. A road-movie after our own heart, metaphorical and self-discovering, where the road clearly symnolizes vagabondage, escape and freedom. A poignant tale of soul searching and friendship, shot in a documentary style and featuring mostly real life people.
