In "The Journey", Simon has his life mapped out, but things happen, and he has to keep recalculating his route.
Like the GPS when you miss a turn.
Except in life, there’s no guarantee you'll arrive where you expected.
After years of hard work and sacrifice, Simon has a good family, a beautiful home and a successful luxury car dealership.
Then a tragic accident shatters his world, and the more he struggles to hold his life together, the more it seems to fall apart. Relationships are under pressure, and as he struggles to handle his grief, there is trouble brewing that could destroy everything he has worked for.
With the looming threat of years in prison, financial ruin and the loss of his family and friends – the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Can Simon save his family and find happiness again?
