Overview
-

Meet Christian Leonard Hooker, Everyman, redeemed by his weaknesses, saved by his failures. In a shuffling odyssey through the American Midwest (a mini-van road trip with his two youngest kids) he confronts his past, imagines his future, and redefines his love for his children. Or does he imagine his past, confront his future, and perplex his children? In a circular nine-day journey, Hooker stumbles through the disjointed epic of his life, looking in vain for signposts in broken memories of Australia, Italy, the Caribbean, and the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. But, sometimes it takes a crooked path to guide you home.
