Much like any road trip, no matter who is in the car, the temperament of those inside shifts. One moment everyone is laughing, and the next someone is yelling, while another person may be crying. However, HIT THE ROAD is not your run-of-the-mill family road trip. Instead it is shrouded in mystery, fear, and the unknown. There is a deep sense of urgency among the passengers to make their destination, but we aren’t entirely sure where they are headed and why—at least at first. Expertly paced and filled with deep sadness and wry humor, HIT THE ROAD embodies the notion of trying to make the best out of a bad situation. —N.A.
