Event Description:

When Hap Anderson, a widowed 82 year old Minnesota farmer who thinks he's still quite the ladies' man sells his family farm he finds himself adrift and staring a short future in the face. Motivated by the possibility of showing up with an old flame and impressing his old army buddies, he sets out to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his unemployed and unreasonably self-confident and entitled granddaughter.

Together, each with their own issues and conflicting agendas, they head west in a dilapidated Winnebago. Encountering oddball tourist attractions and eccentric characters, they find themselves in seemingly impossible situations with only each other for support.

From finding a place that will cash a Travelers Cheque to enjoying a cup of instant coffee, as the journey progresses so does their relationship and they begin to understand and appreciate each other as individuals while discovering that their issues are ageless and that family really matters. With typical understated Midwestern humor and restraint, 'Farmer of the Year' delicately blends the comedy and drama of life.
