Summary
Ella and John have shared a wonderful life for more than sixty years. Now they're on the run from their doctors and middle-aged children, who just want them to go gently into that undignified night of old age. In their trusty camper van, the pair embark on a forbidden vacation of rediscovery along Route 66. Though time is catching up with them, Ella is determined that together they'll make it to their final destination for one more carefree day together, even if it is their last
Summary
At 80-something, Ella Robina is dying. Rather than spend her last moments in treatment for terminal cancer, she kidnaps her husband and takes off in their RV for one last grand adventure down Route 66 to Disneyland. Naturally, her kids (and her doctors) demand that she return home to Detroit, especially since her husband, John, has Alzheimer's. But Ella knows what she wants, and as the two navigate their way down the road, they share memories of their life together (interspersed with Ella's ever-feisty one-liners). -- Description by Shauna Griffin
