The starting point of the plot is that Woody believes he has won a million dollars when he receives a letter from a sweepstakes publishing house. His immediate family knows better but his son David decides to humor him and help him get to Nebraska to claim his winnings. He does it in order to try to connect with his father. What follows is an emotional road trip filled with reunions with family and friends. The main family characters are each sympathetic, making it easy to feel for their plight and cheer for them such as when some relatives and supposed friends try to take advantage of Woody. The emotional connection to the characters and the wonderful humor throughout makes this a highly recommended movie!
