Product Description:

In 1969, just as the Apollo 11 astronauts are about to journey to the moon, science teacher Washington Bellamy (Ted Danson) decides to take his 11-year-old son Andy (Ryan Todd) on a road trip until their 1949 Pontiac Chief has the same mileage as the distance between the Earth and the Moon. Meanwhile Washington's reclusive wife Katherine (Mary Steenburgen) stays at home struggling with her fear of the outside world--until the miraculous moon landing reignites the entire family's capacity for joy and wonder.

Plot Synopsis:

Inspired by the Apollo moon landing, Washington Bellamy, an oddball teacher and frustrated husband, comes up with a wacky idea: he'll take his son on a roadtrip to Spires of the Moon National Park, a voyage with the same mileage between the earth to the moon. His neurotic wife must confront her own anxieties, especially an extreme case of agoraphobia, to follow them cross-country. While on the road, the family learns new things about each other, and before long, gains a newfound sense of love and respect.
