Based on Oscar, Pulitzer Prize, and Emmy Award winning author Horton Foote's Tony Award nominated play, "The Trip to Bountiful" is a courageous and moving story of liberation, as well as a humor-filled celebration of the human spirit.

In "The Trip to Bountiful," Carrie Watts, begrudgingly lives with her busy, overprotective son, Ludie and pretentious daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae. No longer able to drive and forbidden to travel alone, she wishes for freedom from the confines of the house and begs her son to take her on a visit to her hometown of Bountiful. When he refuses, Mrs. Watts is undeterred and makes an escape to the local bus station, where she befriends Thelma, a young woman traveling home. When Ludie and Jessie Mae discover she is gone, they call in law enforcement to help, but Mrs. Watts is one step ahead of them and convinces the local sheriff to help her on her journey home to Bountiful.
