A teenage girl and an adult man drive cross-country, looking for something on the road — but what? The girl is a ball of spite, snapping at the man and his persistent interest in the beautiful scenery, which she couldn't care less about. The two continue their journey, and slowly the truth of their relationship is revealed: He's her stepfather, recently divorced from her mother, and desperate to salvage something of their past. Or maybe he's trying to save himself from the depths of middle age and a life that didn't turn out like he planned.
