Bens dad Sam shows up one night with a note from Bens mother (Sams wife of 46 years), that she has left. While Bens wife and his three sisters try to find her, Ben takes Sam on a day trip to see a farmhouse thats for sale. The day trip turns into a road trip while dad and son explore their past, their relationship, and why Sams wife might have left him. The road trip includes fishing, drinking, playing pool, sleeping under the stars, and frank discussion. Anger simmers close at hand, as do love and hope. Where Sams wife is - and why she left - leads to the movies resolution.
