Mercer steals a car to escape his small Oregon town and finds his older brother after a tragic loss in the family. Once on the road he becomes strangely attached to phone calls from Kate, the forgiving and mysterious girl who owns the car he stole. With Kate along for the ride, Mercer travels west to find a new sense of belonging. A crazy road trip to Reno with Joely and odd encounters with others soon make Mercer realize that everything he is looking for may not be on the road, but on the other end of the phone.

This movie reminded me of another Zooey Deschanel film, 500 Days of Summer (only way worse), in how the story isn't linear. It deviates all over the place and you're not sure if what happened was real or imagined. The problem is there's no real set-up or narration to guide you, so the movie is pretty much a hot mess.I had to fast forward through it because most of it made no sense. It had the potential to be so much more but that got lost somewhere. Spare your time and watch something else.
