A lousy grocery store box boy. How did business major Levi Crowne’s life culminate in a summer job so pathetic?
Just when it seems impossible to utter, “Will that be paper or plastic?” one more time, his wealthy Aunt Barbara offers him a golden opportunity—she will pay him to drive her elderly father, Loyal, from North Dakota to the Utah retirement home that awaits him.
Eager to make a quick buck, Levi accepts the job. How bad could it be? Escort the old man to Glad Tidings Assisted Living Facility as quickly as possible, collect his pay, and get on with life.
But nothing ever goes as planned. As the unlikely duo cross the plains navigating through everything from tornadoes to seedy motels to biker bars, Levi is surprised at the feeling of kinship he develops with his passenger.
In what becomes a life changing adventure, Levi finds himself transformed by a gentle and wise old man who inspires him to slowdown and enjoy the ride.
