Der Weg ist hier definitiv nicht das Ziel, denn am Ende wartet ein Lottogewinn in Millionenhöhe. Das denkt zumindest der grantige Woody Grant (BRUCE DERN), der sich, getäuscht durch einen betrügerischen Werbeprospekt, das vermeintlich grosse Geld persönlich in Lincoln, Nebraska, abholen möchte. Doch die 900 Meilen Strecke von seinem Wohnort zum Ziel seiner Träume kann der Eigenbrötler allein nicht mehr bewältigen. Von seiner garstigen Gattin Kate (JUNE SQUIBB) und seinem verbitterten Sohn Ross (BOB ODENKIRK) ist keine Hilfe zu erwarten: Sie tragen ihm immer noch seine unrühmliche Säufer-Vergangenheit nach und würden ihn am liebsten in ein Heim stecken. Schliesslich erklärt sich sein jüngerer, gutmütiger Sohn David (WILL FORTE) dazu bereit, die Fahrt mit seinem Vater anzutreten - auch wenn die beiden schon lange nicht mehr viel miteinander zu tun haben. Bei einem ungeplanten Zwischenstopp in Woodys Geburtsstadt Hawthorne treffen sie auf ihre Verwandtschaft, alte Freunde und auch viele Neider, die sich vor allem für den neu gewonnenen Reichtum des seltenen Gastes interessieren. Der Vater-Sohn-Trip wird so nicht nur zu einer Reise in Woodys Vergangenheit, sondern vielmehr zur Suche nach Respekt und Anerkennung und vor allem nach etwas, wofür es sich lohnt, weiterzuleben.
