The Leisure Seeker

The Leisure Seeker Image FINAL

Embracing the iconic Americana of road trips and campgrounds, a runaway couple goes on an unforgettable adventure in the faithful old RV they call the Leisure Seeker. In their escape from overbearing middle-aged children, John and Ella recapture their love for each other while traveling from Boston to Key West. As John obsesses over a romantic rivalry of fifty years earlier, Ella finds ways to keep the past alive. Sustained by their bond of shared love and history in this last road trip on their own, the couple discovers surprising revelations after a lifetime’s long journey of traveling together. Introduction by art director Justin O’Neal Miller
