Woody Grant, a crotchety and senile old drunk mired in the backwoods of Billings, Montana, becomes convinced that he will be the winner of a million dollar sweepstake prize if he can somehow get himself to Nebraska, 750 miles away. Everyone else thinks this is all a scam but when Woody shows himself determined to do the journey on foot, if necessary, his son David agrees to drive him and so begins a bizarre riff on the classic American road movie. A delightful bitter-sweet depiction of a side of America we rarely get to see on the screen.
