Lincoln Hawk is a lonesome trucker who is trying to get his life in order having walked out on his wife and son Michael about twelve years ago. With his ex-wife in a terminal condition, she asks Lincoln to collect Michael from his military prep school and come to see her, hopefully allowing them to bond at the same time. Despite the resistance from Michael's grandfather and a less than happy Michael not interested in his dad, the journey begins in Lincoln's truck. Along the way they win money through Lincoln's arm wrestling and gradually father and son start to develop a liking for one another.
