When 80-year-old independent farmer Willis (Lance Henriksen, Alien, The Quick and The Dead) travels to Los Angeles for an indefinite stay with son John (Viggo Mortensen, The Road, Captain Fantastic) and his family, two very different worlds collide. Mentally declining, Willis’ abrasiveness is both caustic and funny, bringing old wounds from the past and years of mutual mistrust to
the surface.

Viggo Mortensen’s debut feature is a poignant family drama casting an authentic eye on dementia and the effects of the condition on family and relationships.
