Ellen is blindsided by her husband's request for a divorce and the news that everything she thought they jointly owned is in his name.

Depressed and defeated, her life spirals out of control, until she impulsively decides to buy a bike and attempt the journey of a lifetime. Nervous and tenuous at first, she eventually gains strength and confidence and sets her sights on riding to California.

Just as she determines this is something she is really going to do, tragedy strikes. The family draws together and Ellen’s husband decides he wants her back. Everyone is in favour of the plan, except Ellen, who feels that her hard-won independence is being stripped away.

Now Ellen is truly at a crossroads. For the first time in her life, she must do what is best for her, ignoring the pressures placed upon her by other people.
