Family dysfunction at its best when the long married and highly dissatisfied Charlotte (60) and her know-it-all granddaughter Jo (13) hit the road to escape her dull husband Paul and Jo’s mother, their daughter Vera, who deals with the world by waging war on it. With a loaded car, an unopened letter from the clinic where Charlotte is being treated for increasing memory loss, and a dead cat in need of a funeral, they set off to do the things they never thought they would, living without a yesterday or tomorrow and enjoying every minute of it. Paul and Vera give chase, determined to return them to the ‘security’ of their previous lives. But there is no turning back the clock and following each other into the unpredictable soon becomes much more fun.
