When Johnny (Joaquin Phoenix), a burnt out radio journalist, is left to take care of his precocious young nephew Jesse (Woody Norman), they embark on a cross-country road trip as Johnny interviews children from around the country, asking them what they think the future will hold. Over the course of the road trip, both Johnny and Jesse bond and come to understand each other and their complicated relationship.
