Two brothers set out in search of their estranged father in this road-bound family drama produced by Lee Daniels Monster's Ball and starring singer Mariah Carey. As siblings, Carter Adam Rothenberg and Ellis Ethan Peck never saw eye to eye. Now Ellis has been diagnosed with leukemia, and his only hope for survival is to track down their estranged father, who lives in Tennessee. Putting their differences aside for the time being, Carter agrees to join Ellis, and together the two siblings decide to hitchhike their way across the country. Along the way, Carter and Ellis cross paths with a waitress named Krystal Carey, who has put her lifelong dream of becoming a singer on hold for far too long. Somewhere on the road to Tennessee, all three will discover the true power of hope, and the importance of family in times of need.
