It is 1963 and the Flannery family is on a trip, a rare outing from their little hometown. They are not experienced travelers and experience multiple mishaps and calamities. Franny wrestles with a killer girdle. Inez crashes into a wayward cow. Billy fends off a knife-wielding Christian. The strangers they meet are getting stranger and stranger. But they are increasingly determined to realize their once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the President and First Lady in person. And they want to be right up front.
