On the eve of John Kerry's 2004 defeat, campaign volunteer John Logue, canvasing in Ohio, says he'll move to Canada if Bush wins. His pledge gets televised, so when John returns to San Francisco - where his old job and girl-friend evaporate - his friends expect him to deliver on the promise. He gets a call from marryacanadian.ca, accepts their invitation to come to Winnipeg, interviews traveling companions, picks Chloe (she with a nose ring), and sets out. Both John and Chloe have secrets, revealed one at a time, and Winnipeg in 2004, with men and women willing to help US ex-pats gain citizenship, may not be what either needs. Echoes of the Vietnam war help them decide.

They stop for gas at Seddon's Corner, Manitoba, Canada, which is north-east of Winnipeg. See more
When they are driving to Winnipeg, John tells Chloe he mapped the best route. However, if this were really the case, they would never have driven through Oregon or Washington. Winnipeg is north of Eastern North Dakota. The fastest way to get there from San Francisco would be to drive through Nevada, then Idaho, Then through Montana, then to Eastern North Dakota and drive north from there to Winnipeg. (Possibly deliberate by the filmmakers: John's parents lived in Washington state, and John wanted to go there but he didn't want to tell Chloe. So he came up with this route, and told Chloe it was the best route.) See more
Can I help you?
Hi, I'm John Logue with the Kerry campaign, and we just want to make sure we get all the voters out there. We have you listed as a strong-leaning Kerry household.
I'm voting for Bush.
You are? Sorry, no matter how many times people say that to me, I just can't get over it. It's like I don't have the enzymes to metabolize someone actually saying that to me.
