So this risk-averse, slow-to-act, quiet man buys a used motorcycle, says goodbye to Samantha, his baffled fiancée, and heads west from Toronto. He imagines it’s a quest for Grumps, a mythical figure from his childhood; he takes digital photos of various “world’s largest” roadside attractions; he chats with strangers, including two women; his bike slips on a dead skunk on the highway. Calls to Samantha meet with pleading that he return for treatment and anger that he won’t. He doesn’t want to be a patient yet. But, will he make discoveries, and what about Grumps? What’s important?
Plot: Ben Tyler has been diagnosed with cancer. With a grim chance of survival in the best case scenario even if he immediately begins treatment, he instead decides to take a motorcycle trip from Toronto through the Canadian prairies to British Columbia.

This is a very Canadian movie, not only in the use of the gorgeous cross-country scenery that provides both a backdrop and a reflective commentary on the main character’s personal search but also because of it is patently outside the realm of the “regular” Hollywood (i.e. American) fare. This is not to suggest that only Canucks can enjoy or appreciate this wonderful, warm-hearted, evocative, simple story because the plot line and embedded themes are universal and timeless.
There is a leisurely quality to this narrative and a kind of inevitability to the whole story that makes it poignant yet full of strength at the same time. The voice-over done by a sonorously voiced Campbell Scott works so well that far from being intrusive as most add-ons are, it (he) becomes a character in his (its) own right.
This is one of those “festival sleepers” that will never have wide distribution but which will delight and uplift any who see it.
A warm and touching film
It is a wonderful story about a man who just found out he was dying of cancer. He decides to question his life, and his life choices. He goes on a trip to find adventure but ends up finding himself. He meets different people along the way who help him straighten things out a bit. They help him shatter some long held beliefs, like he can’t sing or write. In the end, he realizes that he isn’t in love with his fiancé and can’t marry her. I was mesmerized throughout the entire film. Joshua Jackson was phenomenal. He proved he is a star and can carry a movie all by himself. I was very disappointed that the film didn’t more acclaim than it did.
