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 (!).
