End of Sentence

Frank embarks on a journey to honor his deceased wife’s last wish of having her ashes spread in her native Ireland. Frank’s estranged son, recently released from prison, reluctantly agrees to accompany his father, in return for a ticket to California and a promise of never having to see his father again. As it turns out, their journey together becomes more than both father and son had bargained for.
