One chilly spring morning, Joe Beaudry and his wife Laurie; wake up in circumstances that would challenge a saint. They are on the lam in a stolen motor home on the edge of a Wal-mart parking lot in Regina, Saskatchewan. Joe is trying to raise enough cash to get them both to Fort McMurray where he hopes he can find work. But Laurie somehow thinks their situation is only temporary, and maxes out their last credit card on clothes and hair dye. For Joe, it's the last straw. Pushed to figure out what to do next, Joe simply takes off hitchhiking, leaving Laurie waiting, and Joe wondering how he will ever find meaning in a world that has disappointed his every expectation.
