Seventy-six-year-old Marie (Shirley Knight) hasn’t seen the Oregon coast in more than forty-five years. When she learns that her granddaughter is planning a beach wedding, Marie recalls painful memories and gets into an unfortunate argument with her son (James LeGros). Something happened decades ago, and as the anniversary of the event approaches, Marie is faced with a dilemma: Should she attend the wedding or keep herself at a distance? Wanting to do things on her own terms, she leaves her Southern Oregon retirement community to walk the eighty-mile journey to the coast along the fabled Redwood Highway. Her sudden disappearance causes her family and authorities to fear the worst, but Marie is off on a grand adventure where she meets an extraordinary cast of characters, including Pete (Tom Skerritt) and a lion. Ultimately, she discovers that you’re never too old to learn about life and about yourself. Also featuring Catherine Coulson and many Rogue Valley locales and locations.
