A video camera trained on the sleeping man, Ben (director Nick Terry) wakes his friend Russell (Michael Harrison Ward) and forces him to get out of bed and into their car. It's a big day; this is the week that Russell finally proposes to his longtime (and long-distance) girlfriend Samantha, and Ben is planning to document their interstate journey through the Pacific Northwest. "I don't know what she sees in you," Ben jokes, but through snippets of video footage, it's clear that Russell and Samantha are the perfect couple. Mere hours into hitting the road, they stop by a gas station and end up with a third passenger, banjo-toting female drifter Emma (Karin Terry), who joins them despite Russell's resistance. As they encounter fiasco after road-trip fiasco and Russell begins to suffer from cold feet, the three travelers warm up to each other; though Emma is loath to reveal the catalyst of her transient lifestyle, she is spirited and wise, and her effect on the two young men is felt deeply. Finding October is an emotionally engaging chamber piece about growing up, taking responsibility, and learning to love.
