Away We Go


1h 37m 2009

Brief Synopsis

Longtime thirty-something couple Burt and Verona are going to have a baby. The pregnancy progresses smoothly, but six months in, the pair is put off and put out by the cavalierly delivered news from Burt's parents Jerry and Gloria that the eccentric elder Farlanders are moving out of Colorado - thereby eliminating the expectant couple's main reason for living there. So, where, and among whom of those closest to them, might Burt and Verona best put down roots to raise their impending bundle of joy? The couple embarks on an ambitious itinerary to visit friends and family, and to evaluate cities. But when an emergency phone call forces Burt and Verona into an unanticipated Miami detour to visit Burt's brother, they realize that they must define home on their own terms.
