About the Film

"Father Spirit" is an unblinking look into the story of a son's hopeful effort to connect with his terminally ill father on one last epic journey. When Peter is put into assisted living, Jonathan is unwilling to accept his father's confinement within the four walls of the nursing home.

Against all odds and conventional wisdom, Jonathan decides to become his father's caregiver and takes him to one of the world's most rugged and majestic countries - India - where Jonathan already had friends. As son and father take this uncertain but bold step into a four-month ambitious journey, Peter contends with the late stages of the brutal, degenerative Huntington's disease.
