When 32-year-old activist and father Ady Barkan is diagnosed with ALS and given four years to live, he finds himself in a deep depression, struggling to connect with his newborn son, whose presence reminds him of the future he will miss. But after a chance confrontation with Senator Jeff Flake goes viral, Ady decides to embark on a cross-country tour of America, using his final breaths to fight for healthcare justice. Ultimately, Ady discovers that collective action and speaking truth to power offers a source of hope for the future that transforms his relationship with his son and his belief in what is possible for his family.

FAQs
How will it work?
Bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) and our team will check your tickets with a contactless check in scanner, respecting social distancing guidelines. Before your arrival, we will ask you to make sure you can answer “no” to all of the CDC’s COVID-19 safety screening questions. Upon arrival we will do a mandatory temperature check, unless you prefer to provide proof of vaccination. Seating will be arranged in pods (up to 4 people) so that you may sit together with your group, but remain socially distanced from those not in your group. Chairs will be provided in groups of two and four. Masks will be required while interacting with event staff.

Can I bring food and drinks?
All attendees will receive complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages—though you may bring your own, if you'd like! No alcoholic beverages are allowed. Food and drink must be consumed while you are sitting in your designated area.

I’m vaccinated, do I need to wear a mask?
All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask while interacting. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on screen.

What COVID-19 Measures Have Been Taken?
Our guests and our team’s safety is our primary concern. Our COVID-19 safety measures include social distancing for both guests and staff, regular cleaning of all facilities, and contact-free check-in. All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask while interacting. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on-screen. You may sit in your pod with up to 4 people, but we ask that you remain socially distanced from anyone not in the group you have chosen to sit with.
