Tom Johnson has turned 85 and has suffered a few events, although he knows his mind is sharp. His two children want to move him out of the homestead lake house and into a retirement home in town. What Tom wants to do is to find the only woman he ever loved. And so he slips away, deftly covers his tracks, and begins his search for her.
