The feisty Charlie wants no part in this crazy idea, but propelled by Boots' determination, they travel across the country towards their faraway destination. When joined by a young and upbeat hitchhiker, they are compelled to view their relationship in a new light. Old wounds are reopened and family secrets are revealed against a backdrop of beautiful landscapes and new perspectives.
