Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Drake can’t stand his Grandpa. Abandoned years ago by his alcoholic mother, Drake is forced to care for this crazy old man suffering from Alzheimer’s, a disease he doesn’t understand. And his resentment worsens when Grandpa commits a common Alzheimer’s offense: he wanders and disappears. This sparks a desperate missing person search – desperate because Grandpa is lost in a Minnesota winter – and Drake suddenly finds himself thrust in the middle of a media frenzy. The national spotlight draws out some of Grandpa’s old Vietnam War buddies, and their stories reveal a hero much different than the confused old man Drake has always known. His resentment melts, and this adds to his desperation – he must find the old man and tell him he’s sorry before it’s too late. In this incredible story of forgiveness Drake’s pursuit of Grandpa turns into a pursuit of something much grander that will ultimately change his life.
