A young woman with a terminal disease and needing a bone marrow transplant decides to try to find a donor match by going on a year long road trip around America with her sister and best friend. Her crusade to find a hero for herself and for other patients needing transplants forces her to confront her mortality as they discover destructive misconceptions threatening her odds of finding a life-saving match. While on the road, she is pushed out of the passenger seat of her own life as she struggles to embrace her true self despite being a member of a church-going Southern family with their own secret shame. The three girls travel along a scenic, 50 state road trip while everything inside of their van begins to unravel as their "bucket list" adventure turns into a quest for answers they don't know if they want to hear.
Alexandria (Alex) Kimura is a first-time filmmaker from Louisville, KY. Alex is the Co-Founder of Sharing America's Marrow (SAM), a grassroots campaign to register life-saving bone marrow donors. While planning a yearlong, 50 state road trip for SAM, Alex saw the opportunity to document their journey and create a film that helped raise even more awareness for their cause.
