This authentic last-hurrah love story is so heartfelt and bittersweet that it will linger in the mind long after you've read its final page.
In this senior citizens' version of On the Road, an aging couple -- one with cancer, the other with Alzheimer's -- head west towards a Disneyland sunset. Ignoring their children's pleas, Ella and John Robina leave the Detroit suburbs and take to the road in their Winnebago for one grand, improvised last vacation. Along the way, this loving couple encounter a full menagerie of eccentrics; roadside attractions and predators; and poignant if fleeting memories.
