Norman O'Donnell has had a good life - but that's all behind him.
Substituting puzzle pieces for poker chips in their nightly card games,
he and the other residents of the North Point Retirement Home wind down
their twilight years in comfortable routine. When a diagnosis of
Alzheimer's threatens to strip him of his memories and life as he knows
it, Norman asks to make one last pilgrimage to Las Vegas - and is
denied. Taking matters into their own hands, his friends fashion an
elaborate escape. With fire alarms pulled, heart attacks faked, and his
best friend Mildred in tow, Norman steals away with the help of his
grandson, setting off on one last road trip to remember.
