A muleheaded codger and his weary son set off across the dreary heartland plains to retrieve an anticipated $1 million sweepstakes prize. The news upsets the status quo among taciturn family and friends in this darkly comic road trip.

Nebraska has a charm that grows on you like a lichen, a wicked sense of humor that makes you laugh in spite of yourself, a concealed heart soft as a Hostess Twinkie, and a generous, welcome respect for the basic decency of the human race, more valuable than any lottery ticket.” (New York Observer).
