Vincent Gellner is a young Tourette’s sufferer who escapes from a health care facility with his new friends Marie, a feisty anorexic, and Alexander, an easily disturbed obsessive-compulsive. Together they set out on a Europe-wide road trip to honor the dying wishes of Vincent’s recently deceased mother; to have her ashes spread at sea. In pursuit is their doctor and Vincent’s father.

    "The picture’s quiet performances and occasionally surprising moments take it just far enough off the beaten path to make it more than a transparently formulaic feel-good story."
    , The Hollywood Reporter
  • Highest Rating
    "Predictability gives way to touching drama.... What makes a deeper and more lasting impression is how badly they want to save one another, and that it’s the wanting that matters more than the saving."
    , The Washington Post
