What could be more fun than a five-day road trip with your wife’s 93-year old grandfather? Quite a bit, you’re probably thinking.
For middle-aged Paul, the trip is a chance to get away from his failing marriage and a dead-end job for a few days. For Bud, his elderly passenger, the trip means leaving Calgary and getting to his retirement trailer in Mesa, Arizona, and that’s it. (Maybe hit a few Denny’s along the way.) But forget about sharing any life lessons or romantic notions about life on the road. So much for sentimentality.
What sounds like a desperately long trip for Paul, turns into a brilliant and heartfelt road story with plenty of humour and dry desert wit.
