Having not spoken to his brother Jarvis in 50 years, World War II veteran Hotis Brown doesn't expect the phone call from Jarvis' wife Emmeline. Jarvis has had a major stroke and Hotis needs to see him right away. Having no driver's license, and refusing to accept a lift from Sheriff Bernie, Hotis sets off on a 100 mile trek aboard a lawnmower to see his brother. Along the way, Hotis learns a lesson about forgiveness and Sheriff Bernie and Emmeline take their own inspiration from Hotis's strength.
