Vermont filmmaker Samantha Davidson Green brings her idiosyncratic road movie about a dog, a detour, and a second chance, to MIFF for its first screenings outside its native Vermont. While on their way home from broken dreams in L.A., including a busted relationship (that just might not be busted), an accident strands pregnant Chloe and her geriatric dog, Thrasher, on the highway. Unwelcome rescue comes from her estranged dad, Mac, who takes them on a disastrous detour toward a second chance. Shot on location in 20 states across the U.S., this comic, poignant, homemade, and true film has its roots in northern New England but its home throughout our culture.
