Cute little flick
3 December 2018 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

An elderly lady (88 years old) goes alone on a road trip from Kansas to Indiana do to a recurring dream she has about a childhood friend. If the viewer can't see what she's doing within the first 10 minutes of the story you aren't paying attention.

She dishes out her life wisdom to the people she meets while traveling who all seem amazed by her words. In one scene she takes on the biblical role of 'the good samaritan'.

She eventually reaches her destination after putting her family and caring neighbor through hell because she hasn't bothered to learn how to use her cell phone. As stated it's a cute little movie that is sure to be shown in many a sunday school class.
