About the Movie
Meek postal service worker John Paul George, named after three members of The Beatles, has never met his father, Stephen, because he died during the Vietnam War in 1969. While rummaging through the garage of his recently deceased mother’s house, he comes across a box of his father’s war belongings and finds a letter mentioning “Eddie J. Adams”, his best friend from Vietnam. Curious, John starts calling people in the country with the name, eventually coming across someone who seems to recognize the name. John travels to Mississippi, where he finds that the person he spoke with on the phone was actually Edward’s son, Wayne Adams, an ill-tempered hermit. Wayne reveals that he has many letters from his father, most of which detail John’s father, who helped him rediscover his Christian faith. Later that night, Wayne impulsively cuts the roof off his 1965 Ford Thunderbird to “make it a convertible for a road trip”. Confused and angered because his wedding to his fiancée Cynthia is in a matter of weeks, John protests the trip, preferring to just read the letters at Wayne’s house. Wayne is insistent, however, that they go on the long and arduous road trip to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., to see their fathers’ names on The Wall and get closure. Despite clashing many times over many things, such as Wayne getting into a fight with rowdy gas station patrons and John being forced to pay for the letters if he wants to read them, on the trip they learn more about their fathers and themselves.
