The Program (2005)

Ready to change your life?

50 Minutes, Color, High Definition

Matt (Matt Samson) is working in rural Mexico, trying to escape his conventional New York family. Just when he thinks he's achieved his goal, he receives a computer disk from his deceased grandfather labeled "it took me eighty years to learn the meaning of life." Intrigued, Matt and his new co-worker, the spontaneous and carefree Sally (Susie Ross), journey to the nearest town with a computer to find out what's on the disk, and on each other's minds.
