Storyline

Accompanied by Mark Greene, Doug Ross travels to California after being informed that his father has died. He learns that his drunken father ran a stop sign killing not only himself but the female occupant of his own vehicle as well the man in the other vehicle, a hard working family man who leaves behind a widow and several children. All of Doug's unhappy childhood memories come flooding back as he learns of his father's last days. A surprise visitor lifts his spirits, however. When he learns that Mark's parents live only a few hours away in San Diego he insists that they visit. Mark's relationship with his own father, a retired US Navy Captain, is strained and distant.

fathers and sons captured perfectly
29 June 2006 | by frantz21See all my reviews

perfectly and beautifully laid out with all the honesty and history -nothing is left out even his fathers drink driving depriving another family of their father-and ultimately as GC says to MG still have a father very said and very true. It shows the bond between Doug Ross and his friend mark green who travel across the American west - not knowing what they would find . the difference between the two men gets bigger with every mile> mark thinks he his badly done with his dad - but he does not understand the sacrifices his naval father has made . all Doug now has are various memories and at the centre of them is huge Cadillac. Doug and mark go to small church to see the funeral of the other victim of his dads "accident" - on leaving early he bumps into the priest and reluctantly tells the priest who he is and the priest , without judgement , remarks " You came still"
