About the Film
John lives with his partner, Eric, and their daughter, Monica, in California; far from the traditional rural life he had once abandoned. His father, Willis, a headstrong man from a conservative generation, lives alone on his isolated farm where John grew up. As Willis’s mind struggles with memory loss, John invites him westward. He hopes that—with the help of his sister, Sarah—he can help his father find a nearby home. Despite their best intentions, Willis’s angry refusal to change his ways poses a challenge to the peace and harmony they hoped for.
