After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich and is determined to make the 750-mile journey to the sweepstakes company’s office in Lincoln, Nebraska. Worried for his father’s state of mind, it falls to his reluctant, baffled son (Will Forte) to accompany him on his journey that seems futile on the surface, but is full of personal reveals. Shot in a black-and-white Cinemascope that mirrors the dusky beauty of small-town USA, the film gives comic consideration to questions of family roots and family riddles, delusion and dignity, self-worth, and the quiet yearning for a dash of salvation.
In cooperation with Fine Arts Debutantes, The Palm Group of Robert W. Baird, East High School and University of San Diego Denver Alumni
