Eliot’s final wish is to die in his mother’s arms. Sounds easy enough, right? The only problem is his mother is dead. But that does not stop him. Eliot enlists his oldest friend Sadie on a journey across the country to find a woman who not only looks like his mom but agrees to let him die in her arms.

Join Eliot and Sadie on their journey in this heart-warming and heart-wrenching story of friendship as they grapple to understand religion, family, and their own definitions of mortality.
