On a blazing afternoon in a heartland of wheat stubble and clouds that bring no rain, a father and son strike out on a road trip. Stil has taken his ten year-old son, Joey, from his ex-wife’s, crossing the Montana border into Canada. He insists it’s a vacation, but Joey, listening to ransom calls, pushes him hard for the truth.
