The story is about a travel agent who wants to plan a permanent road trip to a warm locale. He thinks it may help his wife, who suffers from psychosomatic Tourette's syndrome.

Principal photography began in April in Whitehorse and Winnipeg. Exteriors were primarily shot in Whitehorse. Filming locations included: White Pass on the Klondike Highway, Johnny's Maples Pizza & Restaurant in Winnipeg, The Golfdome in Winnipeg, Burrows Avenue in Winnipeg, and Civic Parkade behind Winnipeg City Hall.
Cynthia wrote: "The movie crew were just finishing laying down all this white fluffy material to make it look like there was snow on the ground. My husband and his co worker were walking right next to Robin and said "hello Mr. Williams" he replied by saying "hi how are you?" Robin was very friendly and Winnipeg was very happy to have him here."
Here's more information about the corpse used in the movie:
The body looks exactly like Ward Massner, they did a great job when he went to Vancouver and they made the cast of him. He even met Robin Williams on set in Winnipeg while he filmed a scene. I noticed though that Ward Massner does not appear on the credits on IMDB, likely because he does not speak at all in the film. The film opens with Robin finding Ward dead in the dumpster.
Maybe your site could mention this little trivia and we
will all know why the body looks so real... and life like!!
