The documentary “Father Spirit” follows a father and son motorcycle expedition as they wind through the Himalayas and thousand year old cities. Peter and Jonathan travel through the rugged terrain of India for four months as Peter bravely contends with the late stages of Huntington’s Disease.
The viewer gets a rare glimpse into the brutal genetic brain disease and the strength adversity forges. Jonathan is on his own spiritual journey to care for and connect with his father as Huntington’s widens the gulf between them. If at first blush the story strikes you as tragic you will rethink what beauty actually is and the nature of opportunity.
