Summary
Alan is a young college student who is trying to get home to see his mother. She has just had a stroke and is in the hospital, and Alan has this underlying fear that he needs to get to her in case she passes away. So, Alan embarks on a 100 mile hitchhike. Along the way, he must confront his many demons - both living and dead - and in the end Alan must make the ultimate choice that will mean life or death for him and his mother
