Movie synopsis: In the heart of suburbia, sixteen-year-old, closeted Grace Walker is ensnared in a life that’s been chosen for her. Her world is shaken when she inherits the last remnants of her estranged father’s life: a collection of personal drawings, a CD echoing his musical soul, and letters from none other than the legendary Liza Minnelli.

As Grace stands on the precipice of being forced into conversion therapy, she makes a daring escape with her father’s ashes, commandeering the funeral home’s hearse. Her destination? The luminous streets of Los Angeles, to fulfill what she believes to be her father’s final wish.

But Grace isn’t alone. Unwittingly joining her is Red, a sixty-six-year-old with a spirit as troubled as his past, slumbering in the back of the hearse. Without a license to drive, Grace’s only choice is to enlist Red as her unlikely chauffeur.

What unfolds is an odyssey of the heart. As they navigate the highways and the byways of life, they encounter trials and tribulations that test their resolve. But in the midst of adversity, they discover the unshakeable bond of true allyship.

“This Time” is more than a movie; it’s a testament to the journeys we embark on in search of who we truly are. It’s about finding allies in unexpected places and the courage to face the world as it is—and change it for the better.
