*DIRECTOR IN ATTENDANCE* Oscar, a man looking to move on from the losses in his life has finally found the perfect woman in Molly. The only thing standing in his way is Cooper, her seven year old son. Oscar attempts to win the kid’s affections but it spectacularly backfires when Oscar inadvertently freezes the family dog to death. Cooper reacts in strange ways, lugging the cremated dog everywhere and demanding that Pickle be scattered to his favorite park back in San Francisco.
In a last desperate attempt to win Cooper’s favor, Oscar suggests that he take the boy on the trip himself. What follows is a bumpy road trip with ups and downs that may ultimately bring the family together or tear apart what little connection they have.
