A depressed man is kidnapped by his Craigslist roommate to see a sunrise over the ocean. But then, tensions begin to mount.
Charlie is in a funk. Actually, more than a funk — a bog of serious depression he can’t quite pull himself out of, even with his latest prescription of anti-depressants.
His roommate Miles, though, is convinced he can fix Charlie. He flushes Charlie’s medication down the toilet and “kidnaps” Charlie, taking him on a fast-paced road trip to see a sunrise over the ocean.
But tensions mount as the depth of Charlie’s pain is revealed — and the ocean could be an end for Charlie, not the beginning of a new chapter.
Depression is a serious topic, but this dark comedy takes a sarcastic, sharply humorous approach to Charlie’s story, with its witty dialogue and finely drawn performances. But it never minimizes real pain and agony of Charlie’s depression.
The result is a mordant yet funny jaunt that will make you laugh — but also illuminates how misunderstood depression is, and how that lack of understanding makes an already painful mental health condition even more difficult.
