Synopsis: Washed-up history professor Lewis Birch (Oscar nominated Griffin Dunne) takes his begrudging teenage kids – Zoe and Jack – on a road trip to a conference in hopes of putting his career back on track. But, when Lewis’s estranged father goes AWOL on a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, Lewis is forced to make a family detour. The Birch family find themselves on a journey of discovery and connection as they make their own passage west.
“A sweetly amusing tale of a dysfunctional modern family trying to work out its issues… [Dunne] is nicely bedraggled as Lewis and Martin stands out as the strong-willed but sensitive Zoe.” – Screen Daily
“Warmhearted… Schwarz’s feature debut benefits from an intelligent script and sympathetic lead performance by Griffin Dunne.” – Hollywood Reporter
