In a small Oregon town, a group of friends are in search of a missing teenager’s body. They want to be heroes in each other’s and their hometown’s eyes.  So they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery.

When they encounter the town’s knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had.

STAND BY ME is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up. Filled with humor and suspense, STAND BY ME is based on the novella ‘The Body’ by Stephen King.
