"Carrie Watts (Lois Smith) longs to return to her childhood home of Bountiful, Texas, where she hasn't been in thirty years. Despite her failing health, she grows more determined to escape from the tiny Houston apartment she shares with her soft-spoken son and watchful daughter-in-law (Hallie Foote). Finally she gets her chance to head homeward, and it is the journey of a lifetime," state press notes.

In addition to Smith and Foote, the cast includes Devon Abner, Meghan Andrews, Gene Jones (Big River/Broadway), Sam Kitchin, and Frank Girardeau.
