When Margaret Adams, 250 pounds and pregnant, decides to leave her life behind and take to the open road on a motorcycle stolen from her nutty husband Roger, she doesn’t know where her future will take her.

There she discovers an unusual makeshift family who teach her about herself, her relationships, and the joys and burdens of the family you choose and the family that chooses you.
