along the way that sidetrack his journey. At the same time, though, they set him off on a dangerous quest. Then, when he gets an ominous call from an evil source and reluctantly accepts a perilous assignment, it forces Proudfoot to confront his own limitations as well as a heritage he has so long denied. But that inevitable showdown may be the tragic end of the highway for him. Meanwhile, his wife and young son are on the road as well. She is searching for something she cannot identify as well as she unwittingly retraces the infamous Trail of Tears.
