Based on true events, about Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth), an old man in poor health, living on social security benefits, and taking care of his mentally disabled daughter, Rose (Sissy Spacek). He learns that his estranged brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has just suffered a heart attack, so he decides to make peace before they're both gone. Alvin leaves his home in rural Iowa to where Lyle lives, in Wisconsin, but he has no driver's license. With no license and no car and bad eyesight, his only option is to make the trip driving his riding lawn mower, towing a trailer.
