While driving from Ontario to Winnipeg, ex-con and drifter Alex Hughes picks up a 19-year-old hitchhiker named Vivienne, who is heading to Wawa. On the way, Alex's car is hit by a semi and Vivienne is killed. Wracked with guilt, he decides to visit her mother and apologize. What he doesn't realize is Vivienne's mother, Linda, is autistic.

!!This film provides examples of:

* TheAtoner: Alex.
* CloudCuckoolander: Linda, and Vivienne to a lesser extent.
* DeadpanSnarker: Alex. Then again, [[Creator/AlanRickman consider who's playing him]].
* DescriptionPorn: Linda's example for the word "Dazlious" while playing "Comic Book Word Scrabble". Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* DoesNotKnowHowToSayThanks: The film is littered with instances where someone does something nice for Linda, and not only does she not say "thank you", but often she questions or criticizes the gesture because she doesn't understand social niceties to her, they're useless and nonsensical.
* {{Expy}}: Angela Pell wrote the screenplay with Alan Rickman in mind; in fact, Alex's name was originally "Alan". Rickman himself says that Alex is the character closest to his real personality: "Just someone doing the best he can". (Aside from the ex-con part, obviously.)
* GoodBadGirl: Maggie.
* [[GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave Grandpa, What Massive Hotness You Have]]: ''Everyone'' tells Alex that either he or [[AudioErotica his voice]] is sexy. [[AuthorFilibuster It gets rather silly after a while]].
