Bruce McDonald's debut feature is a rock 'n' roll road movie that concerns the adventures of a Toronto rock promoter's assistant, Ramona (Valerie Buhagiar), sent to track down a band called the Children of Paradise that has gone missing in northern Ontario. Ramona doesn't drive so she recruits a pot-smoking cab driver (Larry Hudson) to take her the full 400+ km across the province.
Along the way, they meet a film director (Bruce McDonald) with big dreams whose film's subject matter is dead animals on the highway, and an aspiring serial killer who just doesn't know how to get started (Don McKellar). Ramona may find the band in the end, but ultimately what she discovers about herself is far more important!
McDonald directed the cult hits Highway 61, Roadkill, Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments, starring Elliot Page, Pontypool, and the award-winning series Twitch City, episodes of Degrassi and Heartland. His recent films include Trigger, The Husband, Hellions, Weirdos and Dreamland. He recently directed the series Creeped Out and Malory Towers and is currently working on the films Switched at Death and I Have a Bad Feeling About This.
