"The Old Man and the Sea" is his favorite. Because his wife Ella needs to be hospitalized due to serious disease, John should only enter the nursing home. The two who go through the life hand in hand face a forever separation. Therefore, they’ve made a crazy decision that they drive their caravan called "Leisure Seeker", traveling all the way southward from Massachusetts to look back the vacations they have made in the 70's with their children on the journey, and their destination is the former home of Hemingway, Key West.
