Stephen (William McNamara) has had it with this world, so he decides to end it all, and with a noose already dangling from the ceiling of his living room, he gives the outside world one more spin to take care of his affairs, after a fixed schedule - when he stumbles over Maria (Kaylynn Kubeldis), a blind girl on a school trip who has lost her class and almost got involved in a car accident. Stephen tries to place her in a police car to do the right thing and get rid of the responsibility, but it seems all cops in town have better things to do. He also tries to call Maria's mum, but nobody answers, and she doesn't know who else to call. So begrudgingly at first, he decides to take her with him at his tour through town - sure, he finds the girl a tad irritating, but then again he can't leave a young blind girl to her own devices. So he takes her with him on his trip, along which he tries to spread his (rather considerable) wealth to those in need (with mixed results), do a few things he wants to do one last time (like going to see a silent movie or sing karaoke) - and see (at least from a distance) his divorced wife one last time. And during all of this, little Maria really grows on him, and she proves an asset more than once when he gets into situations he shouldn't have. And slowly, the motives for Stephen wanting to end it all become clear - but can the blind girl change his perception of reality?

 

You better get a box of tissues ready, as this movie's a bit of a tearjerker - but it achieves that not by kitsch overload but by carefully building up its story and conflicts, revealing things only by the by and painting a full picture only in the final act. Also Kaylynn Kubeldis' Maria is not your run-of-the-mill cute and helpless girl, neither in looks nor attitude, but quite a character of her own, while William McNamara's Stephen isn't just the cold guy whose heart needs melting but actually tries to do good from the moment he leaves his house - and both of them give rather wonderful performances, also helped by a direction that keeps things moving at a steady pace and adds action and mystery to the basic plot, to make this one nice (if ultimately tearjerking) piece of entertainment.
