Summary
Bill Warrington is a retired salesman, a widower, and a recently diagnosed Alzheimer's sufferer. His relationships with his children are fraught -- one son is a wanderer, the other estranged; his daughter is a single mother struggling to raise a pigheaded 14-year-old, April. But Bill has vowed to repair these relationships by kidnapping April, driving to California, and leaving clues intended to force his children to overcome mutual distrust and work together. The first part of the plan comes together beautifully, but Bill's increasing mental troubles mean that his grand plan may in fact depend on April, who may be out of her depth. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
