An exhausted suburban family road-trips to complete their terminally ill daughter's bucket list, but it is only through the child's borrowed time that they discover the life they have been given. Q and A after the screening. About the Director May Yam: May Yam is an award-winning, international filmmaker with over 15 years of experience across media genres including Emmy-winning TV news segments, award winning short films, marketing videos and documentaries.

May's eye for detail and experience in production have given her the tools needed to create visually engaging pieces that not only deliver empowering messages but also make them stand apart.

May also won the 2017 Best Cinematography Award for Headwind at the Glendale International Film Festival and 2015 and 2016 Audience Choice Awards at the International San Jose Short Film Festival 3DFCs for Popped and Carrier 3. Director's Statement: My passion for telling compelling stories, that touch the heart and soul of my viewers is what drives me. I'm interested in a socially relevant message that also confronts cultural bias. As a woman and a minority, I am challenged with the limited number of opportunities to grow as a director. While there are fantastic organizations that help to level the playing field, I am still not in the game with full equality. I want all generations to embrace messages that challenge the status quo; problems and solutions are genders neutral. My work is about entertaining and enlightening, for together they are a powerful force to connect with and change people's lives.
