[TRAILER] Widowed beekeeper and Vietnam veteran Ulysses "Ulee" Jackson (Peter Fonda) raises his granddaughters (among them, Casey, played by Jessica Biel) because his son, Jimmy (Tom Wood), is in prison. When Jimmy finds out that his estranged wife, Helen (Christine Dunford), has gotten herself into trouble with a crew of drug dealers and has run away, he asks Ulee for help. Ulee begrudgingly agrees to find Helen. When he does, he must rely on the unexpected aid of a divorced nurse (Patricia Richardson) to get Helen through her withdrawal.

Written, directed, and edited by Victor Nuñez (Ruby in Paradise).

Love this movie, but also because it was weird to see Orlando as the "big city" in it. I would have thought where they were, she'd have run off to Mobile or New Orleans.
