Letting Go is a nice story about facing the death of a parent, long term care, and finding love in the most unexpected places.
It isn't necessarily a pretty story, but I think it is a bit true to life and perceptions of what family members think another family member may do based on past experience and what that person actually does when coming face to face with a diagnosis.
And, like the title says, it is also about letting go - of perceptions and of knowing that, even though a choice may "seem" wrong, that it may not necessarily be so - and of acceptance of choices, being able to move on, and of finding strength.
Between taking care of his dying father and putting himself through college, David Mackenzie is approaching his breaking point. A twenty-year-old virgin, he doesn’t have the time or energy to date or socialize. When his father agrees to try medicinal marijuana as a treatment option, David meets an attractive, outgoing young man named Zev, who becomes the friend David never realized he needed. David’s father is nearing the end of his life, and Zev is becoming far more than a shoulder to lean on—he might be David’s first opportunity to embrace life and let go.
