Andy and I had been best friends since we were eight-years old. Watching him slowly fade away, ever closer to his final breath, made me so incredibly angry. I knew there was nothing I could do to change it--I had given in to despair, but Andy had not. He had one last hand to play. He wasn't going to simply sit back and wait for Death to claim him--not Andy. He was going to live life until he couldn't hold his eyes open any longer. Andy didn't want to die in some sterile hospital and asked me to take him and Emily to the beach. It would be our last road trip together. Emily. Emily was a problem for me. I harbored a secret that would have torn our friendship apart. I was in love with Andy's girl, and had been since she'd walked into our sixth grade class, so many years ago. So what kind of person am I? My best friend is dying, and it's awful--but my heart still aches for his girl. I hate myself for thinking beyond Andy's death and whether there could ever be a future for Emily and I, but I can't help it. I love her.



How does you give so selflessly when you're the one dying?!
"Out of Reach"
all starts with friendship, a simple video camera, a few last dreams, and an unconditional love that gives all the way till the end. 
Call me crazy...but I love the gut wrenching feeling of being wrecked.
That emotional tug that pulls us under.
 Crying like a baby. 
Then graduating to full blown sobs.

I loved this incredible story of love, loss, finding yourself and finding one another.
There's no way it won't tug at your heartstrings!
5 Stars for me!
