After being diagnosed with ALS, a curmudgeonly older man, Sol, goes to the hospital with his partner Ben to record a voice bank of phrases and words before he loses the ability to speak. “How I Got to the Moon by Subway” is a story about finding solace in the people we love when a small moment feels like an odyssey. It is a thank you letter to the people who stick with us through the most difficult times, who show us how loved we are in our darkest moments.
