Cantankerous buzzard Woody can barely walk down the street of his home in Montana without stopping for a drink. So when he receives a sweepstakes notice in the mail and insists on making a 750-mile trip to Nebraska to collect his prize, it falls to baffled son David to accompany him. During a stop in their hometown, word gets out about Woody’s fortune, first making him a hero, then later, the target of predatory people.
