Excellent and moving movie! Loved it. It is about courage and facing our demons! If you are a Golden Indigo, you will 'Get' this movie! At the start of the film, which was written by Gary Lundgren and James Twyman and directed by Lundgren, Marie (Knight) is living in a seemingly comfortable retirement home in Oregon. But she's not a happy camper. Her son, Michael (James Le Gros), placed her there against her will, and although she's sociable, she's clearly sharper and more vigorous than many of the other residents. When Michael comes for a visit, he wants to make plans to take her to his daughter's wedding. Marie claims to disapprove of her granddaughter's fiancé — a drummer in a band — but she's also disgruntled by the family's treatment of her and she declines the wedding invitation. Marie then begins to have second thoughts, but she's a proud woman, and decides to make the 80-mile journey to the coast on her own.
