Description: There was a time when Stanley Phillips dreamed of patriotic service and was destined for a military career. But, that dream was cut short because of his poor eyesight. Now, he's serving customers at a home supply store while his sergeant wife is fighting in Iraq. Equally as awkward at home as he is at work, he's raising Heidi, their 12-year-old daughter and her eight-year-old sister Dawn. Although Stanley is a loving father, the girls miss their mother deeply. While tolerating his job and stumbling through parenting, he is abruptly awakened when tragedy strikes: his wife is killed in Iraq. Ill prepared to deal with her death himself, he is at a complete loss about telling his children. Instead, he and the girls embark on a spontaneous road trip. Grasping to give them their last moments of innocence, Stanley reveals a softer side as they travel to Dawn's chosen destination - Enchanted Gardens Theme Park. The farther they drive the closer they become, yet Stanley knows he must face the inevitable task of changing their lives forever.
