Believing that he has won a million dollars in prize money from a publisher’s clearing house, Woody Grant is determined to get to Lincoln Nebraska to collect his prize money. Found walking alone along a roadway and returned home by police, Woody convinces his youngest son to accompany him to pick up his prize. The film, which is essentially a road trip, brings an estranged father and son together in this simple, yet powerful dark comedic family drama (Klaus Ming February 2014).
