About the Film
Divorced mom Laura (Vera Farmiga) has an easier time connecting with stray animals than with the people in her life. When her rebellious teenage son, Henry, is expelled from public school, Laura reaches out to her estranged father, Jack (Christopher Plummer), for help with private school tuition. But Jack himself has just been kicked out of his retirement home and needs a favor in return: a ride from Seattle to Los Angeles to move in with Laura’s sister, JoJo (Kristen Schaal). Unbeknownst to Laura, Jack plans to sell weed at special stops along the way. Laura reluctantly agrees to transport her father, with Henry and a menagerie of animal charity cases along for the ride, in writer/director Shana Feste’s offbeat dysfunctional family road trip comedy.
