After selling the farm he’s worked for 60 years, an aging farmer, Hap Anderson, (Barry Corbin) finds himself useless and adrift. Struggling to maintain his youth and driven by the possibility of showing up with an old flame to impress his old army buddies, he sets out in a ’73 Winnebago to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his aimless and unreasonably self-confident granddaughter Ashley (Mackinlee Waddell). As the journey progresses so does their relationship and they begin to understand and appreciate each other as individuals while discovering that being young and being old, aren’t all that different.

A deceptively simple look at aging, transitions, loss and family.
