One night, Sam showed up with a note from Ben's mother. While Ben's wife and his three sisters try to find her, Ben takes Sam on a day trip to see a farmhouse that's for sale. The day trip turns into a road trip as dad and son look at their past, their relationship, and why Sam's wife might have left him. Fishing, drinking, playing pool, sleeping under the stars are some of the activities on the road trip. Hope and love are close to each other. The movie's resolution can be traced to where Sam's wife is.
