The Trailer (Click the symbol next to "vimeo" for full screen)

Bill Warrington realizes he has Alzheimer's and his lucid days are numbered. Determined to repair a lifetime of damage with his estranged adult children, Bill takes off with his fifteen-year-old granddaughter, April, on a cross-country drive, bound for San Francisco, where she dreams of becoming a rock star. As the unlikely pair head west, Bill leaves clues intended to force his three children--including April's frantic mother--to overcome their mutual distrust and long-held grievances to work together to find them.

In this dazzling road trip of a novel, James King explores themes of aging, sibling rivalry, family dysfunction, and coming of age, against a backdrop of the American heartland. Unflinching, funny, and poignant, Bill Warrington's Last Chance speaks to the universal longing for familial reconciliation, love, and forgiveness.
