In this moving drama, Martin Tillman (James Coburn) embarks on a quest to find the gun used in the murder of his daughter Penny (Virginia Madsen). With only the gun's serial number for a clue, Tillman travels across the United States, from gun shows to stores, in search of the weapon, his runaway granddaughter, and closure. This last performance by James Coburn before his death provides an emotional look at a father's love and insight into the root of American gun violence.
