"A father and son steer the American road comedy into a vanishing Midwest on the trail of a dubious fortune - and in search of an understanding of each other that once seemed impossible. This is the story of the Grant family of Hawthorne, Nebraska. Now transplanted to Billings, Montana, stubborn, taciturn Woody is well past his prime -- such as it ever was -- and possibly his usefulness, but he believes he's got one last shot at mattering: a notice that he's the lucky winner of a million-dollar sweepstakes. To claim his fortune, Woody insists he must quickly get to the sweepstakes company's office in Lincoln, Nebraska - a-750-mile journey that seems unlikely given that he can barely shuffle down the road a few blocks, at least not without stopping for a drink. Worried for his father's state of mind, it falls to Woody's reluctant, baffled son David to accompany him on a trip that seems hilariously futile on the surface. Yet, their odd journey becomes a kind of modern family odyssey. When Woody and David make a pit-stop in their hometown of Hawthorne - with the Grant's tart-tongued matriarch and anchor-man son joining them - word of Woody's fortune makes him, momentarily, a returning hero. Then it brings out the vultures. But it also opens a view into the unseen lives of David's parents and a past more alive than he ever imagined."--Container
