In this hilarious road story, Edith and Dixie - daughter and mother - are en route from Vancouver to small-town Manitoba. Uptight Edith and carefree Dixie are at odds - Dixie endures Edith's cynicism while Edith barely tolerates her mother's open-minded indiscretions. Their picaresque adventures intersect with the lives of an amusing group of characters including an impertinent waitress, an amorous travelling salesman, a cross-dresser, and a road-weary musician. The underlying current is warmth and affection as both women arrive at an understanding of their own and each other's impulses, and Dixie re-asserts that Edith is indeed the Cadillac kind.
