Faced with his father's death, a young man is sent on a journey to find himself. What he finds, he doesn't expect, but whatever he finds, he tries to keep.


Sam Holmes is a young school teacher living an uneventful, albeit pleasant life – even if he won’t admit how lonely he is. Dedicated to teaching, Sam is energized by the end of the school year as an endless summer sits before him. Now he has the time to dedicate himself fully to training for the historic New York City Marathon – his first.

But Sam’s life is radically changed when his father suddenly passes away. His father’s final wishes are unique: to earn his inheritance, Sam’s father is sending him on a quest; to travel to the places that had been significant in his father’s life and scatter his ashes at these destinations. Now, instead of a pleasant summer, Sam is thrust into a journey he neither wanted nor asked for.

Through these journeys Sam gets to truly know his father and himself. During one of these trips Sam meets Rachel Parker, a young woman who helps bring direction, clarity, and companionship to Sam’s lonely life. As he faces the struggles of a contract dispute at work, a budding romance, and running in his first marathon, Sam Holmes must make the critical decisions that will impact the rest of his life.
