Plot – Alvin Straight is 73-years-old and lives with his daughter Rose in Laurens, a small town in Iowa. Alvin isn't good but he refuses examinations and medicines. As he learns his brother Lyle has had a heart attack, Alvin wants to visit him as they haven't seen for ten years. The old man doesn't have a driving licence and chooses to drive an old lawn mower heading to Zion, in Wisconsin. After five weeks, the lawn mower stops due to mechanical problems and Alvin is helped by a local family. When finally he arrives to Zion, he reaches Lyle's house. The two old men look at each other without saying a word. They just look at the sky and at the stars together.
