Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
An Italian boy with Tourette's syndrome flees the clinic where he was sent by his father in order to fulfill his mother's dying wish in this tender comedy drama from Germany. Vincent's mother died before she could gaze at the sea one last time. Though Vincent longs to get her ashes to the ocean, he is currently locked away in an institution. Thanks to the help of his anorexic fellow inmate Marie, however, Vincent manages to make a clean break and land a pair of wheels -- nothing fancy, but enough to get Vincent, Marie, and their obsessive-compulsive pal, Alex, to the coast. Meanwhile, Vincent's blowhard father and his uptight therapist set out in hot pursuit, never missing a chance to take a few personal swipes at one another in their frantic race to track the trio down.
