The final film to star the one and only Harry Dean Stanton is at once a love letter to the life and career of the late screen legend as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

The charming and moving comedic drama is the directorial debut of actor John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, Zodiac), following the spiritual journey of Harry Dean Stanton’s character ‘Lucky’, a cantankerous, self-reliant 90 year old atheist, and the quirky characters that inhabit the Arizona town where he lives. Having out-lived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment.
