sYNOPSIS Teenage Nola grew up living out of a van with her beloved father Clint, two nomads against the world. When tragedy strikes, Nola is confronted by the reality that life as an outsider may not be her only choice. She must engage with others to integrate herself into a society she has never known. As she slowly expands the relationships in her life, she is faced with the decision to get off the road for the first time, or to forge onward - with only her wits and memories as her road map.
PRESS “A beautiful story about survival.” “‘The Short History of the Long Road’ is the type of optimistic, sentimental fare we need in the trying times we live in.” “Ani Simon-Kennedy captures the resilience of van-dwelling” “Among the numerous fiction features that screened at the festival, the most impressive title was perhaps The Short History of the Long Road, written and directed by Ani Simon-Kennedy.” “Sabrina Carpenter is a revelation.” “‘The Short History of the Long Road’ is a guileless film that touches the heartstrings.” “A movie with a lot of heart and superb entertainment value.”
