Charlie Babbitt is a would-be Trump, selling high-end import automobiles with dubious pedigrees in L.A. He's also a self-absorbed, fast-talking shark--materialistic, cold, all business. When he learns his wealthy, estranged father has died, he returns home to Cincinnati to claim his share of the estate: his Dad's prize roses and a 1949 Buick Roadmaster. The 3 million dollar estate has been left in trust for Raymond, a brother he never knew he had. Determined to get "his half" of the money, Charlie steals Raymond from the institution that is his home, in order to force the trustee to give him half to avoid a custody fight. Raymond is autistic, and a mass of idiosyncratic routines and nervous habits: he won't go out in the rain; he recites "Who's on first?" when he's upset; he flatly refuses to fly. Accompanied by Charlie's long suffering girlfriend Susanna, Charlie and Raymond begin the cross-country journey to Los Angeles. What begins as an unsentimental journey for the Babbitt brothers becomes much more than the distance between two places
