"Nebraska" follows an aging alcoholic father who thinks he's won a million dollar Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes prize. He is unbowed when his family tries to dissuade him from making the long trip from Montana to Nebraska to cash in his winnings. So his estranged 20-something son -- who doesn't believe the ticket is a winner -- is forced to go along with him for the ride to keep him out of trouble, providing an opportunity to bond with his father after years of separation.
