Nova Scotia. 1976. The weekend of the American Bicentennial. 15-year-old Kit is running away from home, hitchhiking with his girlfriend Alice to move in with his estranged mother (Molly Parker) and, hopefully, to find himself.
Bruce McDonald’s tender and bittersweet teen drama is the perfect summer film: A road trip of self-discovery that travels across a beautiful Nova Scotia, all set to fabulous 70s tunes. A gentle gem featuring a star-making performance by Julia Sarah Stone.
