The Road Within

The Road Within  

Synopsis

On the road. But a little bit off.

Vincent (Robert Sheehan, Mortal Engines), a young man with Tourette’s syndrome, faces drastic changes after his mother dies. Because his politician father (Robert Patrick, Walk the Line) is too ashamed of the disorder to have Vincent accompany him on the campaign, Vincent is shuttled off to a behavioural clinic.

Feeling more alone than ever, Vincent finds a friend in Marie (Zoë Kravitz, Rough Night), who has made her return to the centre because of her anorexia. Together they decide to steal Dr. Rose’s car to scatter Vincent’s mother’s ashes in the ocean, but end up having to kidnap his OCD roommate, Alex (Dev Patel, Lion), after he threatens to turn them in.

Soon, Vincent’s father and Dr. Rose (Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer), are in hot pursuit as Vincent, Marie and Alex embark on an epic road trip that will change their lives forever.
