Earl Evans is losing his memory. Or at least that’s what his daughter tells him. He can admit he’s a little forgetful from time to time, but that’s normal for someone who’s nearly ninety, right? He doesn’t want to go to the memory care unit, nor does he think he needs to. But his family and the staff at his assisted living facility are not giving him options.
Earl’s quiet life is disrupted when an outspoken, tale-spinning man named Teller moves into the facility and convinces Earl to go on a road trip with him. To escape the dreaded memory care unit and to have one final adventure, Earl and Teller hatch a plan to escape the assisted living facility and drive across the United States. This might be the last big road trip for these two octogenarians—but along the way they’ll discover adventure, friendship, maybe even the meaning of life.
