In 1970, Joey and Pete left Nova Scotia to try life in the big city in the Canadian Classic Goin' Down the Road. Now, some forty years later, Joey has died, and Pete must fulfill his last wish: to take his ashes back to Cape Breton Island, as well as a few other tasks along the way. Armed with a series of letters and an envelope full of money, Pete heads back home. DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN is a touching, comedic and romantic tale of second chances at life and love.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a worthy companion piece to its raw and jagged partner, maybe a bit old-fashioned, maybe a bit too sweet, but imbued with wisdom, heart and good intentions."
‑ Greg Quill, Toronto Star
"Shebib, who would probably be the first to admit that Goin' Down the Road is a hard act to follow, tells the story in Down the Road Again with energy and humour and he gets terrific performances from his cast."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"Returning to the characters he created in 1970, Shebib has made a wheezy, flat and unnecessary follow-up that tries in the clumsiest way imaginable to slap a happy ending on the first film's downbeat story."
‑ Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
