It's a story of the 1970s. Of a road trip in a wood-paneled station wagon, with the kids in the way-back, singing along to the Steve Miller Band. Brothers waking up early on Saturday mornings for five consecutive hours of cartoons and advertising jingles that they'll be humming all day. A father --- one of 3M's greatest and last eight-track-salesman fathers --- traveling across the country on the brand-new Boeing 747, providing for his family but wanting nothing more than to get home.
