"By marrying the all-American road genre with a poignant, adult study in grief, Nathan Wetherington has crafted a thoroughly precious film."
"Doornbos is incredible, giving us so much with so little, and it’s a master class in acting."
"This is what 'small' filmmaking can and should be."

"Likely the best narrative film I saw at SBIFF, ATMB is a small film with an incredibly large heart that deals frankly yet tenderly with the most tragic circumstances imaginable." -Screen Comment
"Sometimes you have drop it all before you can start picking up the pieces."
After losing his wife and daughter, Preston Avery finds himself suddenly trapped in grief and isolated in a now empty house with nothing but the ghosts of his previous life to haunt him. As the days bleed together and the walls of the house slowly close in around him, all hope seems to be lost until a motorcycle mysteriously appears one morning on his doorstep.
In an act of restless despair, Preston sets out on a solo trip across California. On the road, he eventually crosses paths with a spirited young woman named Tracey, who is finally able to break through his fog of grief just long enough to throw him a lifeline back into the land of the living. But will he be able to take hold and leave the past behind?
