Road trips can be for work or pleasure, but either way they usually they end up memorable. Russell and Ben are on a journey across the Northwest so Russell can ask his girlfriend’s hand in marriage. Ben tags along for the ride as a budding filmmaker (and the director of the film) to document the trip. Along the route they pick up Emma, a musician with a past of her own. As the three venture down the highway, truths, questions, and the end of innocence percolate to the surface along the rainy blacktop.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
