"But unfortunately, the Old Man wanted us to do this together. And that's exactly what we're going to do."
Two brothers who can’t stand each other have 24 hours left to fulfill their dad’s dying wish to have his ashes scattered at Burning Man. When their car goes up in smoke near a seedy motel in the desert, they’re forced to confront their worst enemy: themselves. Don't miss the regional premiere of this serious comedy.
