One For The Road ✔ | Wattys 2017 |
Jessie Adkins has dreamt about running away ever since moving to the nothing-ever-happens town of Newton Berry as a precocious primary-schooler.
Ellis Adams has dreamt of road trippin' across America ever since his next door neighbour Jessie invited him in to watch Ghostbusters after school, kick starting a love affair with movies.
Now, with college over and University looming in September's shadow, the pinky swear promise made years ago, to travel together across the grand old U S of A before adulthood rains down responsibility, finally becomes a reality.
Diners, dives and drive-ins are all part of the plan. As are Ellis' long list of movie locations, decidedly dicey motels and America's fattiest, fast foods.
But all the rest?
Not so much.
