Canadian master Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments) teams with veteran playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor for this offbeat coming-of-age comedy-drama, about two Nova Scotian teens who hit the road in July 1976 accompanied by the laconic ghost of (the still-living) Andy Warhol.

In a small Nova Scotian town in 1976, 15-year-old Kit (Dylan Authors) and his platonic girlfriend Alice (Julia Sarah Stone) decide to shake up their go-nowhere existence by hitchhiking to Sydney to visit Kit's glamorous but unstable mother (Molly Parker) — a journey that will force them to face some hard truths about themselves and point the way toward a more honest and fully-lived future. Beautifully shot in black and white and scored with a suitably killer '70s soundtrack, the new film from Canadian master Bruce McDonald and playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor spikes its coming-of-age road-movie template with a witty and inventive dash of magic realism.
