“ROUTE OF ACCEPTANCE”— The Existence of Destiny


Route of Acceptance

The Existence of Destiny

Amos Lassen

Writer/Director Heather Tobin in “Route of Acceptance” shows us that destiny does possibly exist by introducing us to Ryan Stark, a young lesbian, who is thinking about which university she should attend. She is a hopeful film writer who wants to learn but she is afraid to leave her home and its comforts and predictability. She felt safe in high school but she has graduated and the time to move is very close at hand. We see that the decisions we make can change our future—with Ryan it was the decision to go to one university did just that. Our choices that we make as we journey on the walk of life bring about strong emotions. Ryan was torn somewhere between her love for family and its expectations and what she hoped would be her career.
