Film Synopsis

Woody Grant is an obstreperous, hard-drinking man, now elderly and confused, who becomes convinced by a magazine sweepstakes mailer that he has won a million dollars. When he persists in leaving his Montana home in an attempt to walk to Lincoln, Nebraska, and claim his prize, his son David takes him on a road trip that will revisit the sites of his father's youth.
