The Mostly True Story of Tanner & Louise

Tanner’s parents are not too happy with her. After a horrific accident her soccer career, scholarship and life at Northwestern University disappeared overnight. Back in her parents basement playing video games 24/7 they finally hit rock bottom. With no real world job skills Tanner is sent to live with and keep an eye on an older woman named Louise. The woman’s children believe she needs some assistance and company. After a rocky start (it’s hard to tell who is more unhappy) Tanner and Louise find common ground and commit to a predictable daily routine. Small, unexplainable clues start to niggle at Tanner’s brain. A locked shed with no windows. A feature story on the nightly news with a drawing that resembles Louise as a suspect in an historical robbery. Late one night Louise arrives in Tanner’s room with a packed suitcase. Tanner will be paid an enormous amount of money - no questions asked - to drive Louise to California. Always a rule follower, Tanner throws caution to the wind for the first time and begins the journey of a lifetime. Both reluctant to open up, mile after mile they learn about each other and slowly discover the truth about themselves. Erratic Thelma and Louise style adventure and laugh out loud funny. Mostly silly, but Tanner & Louise also touches on the relationship of a feisty older person, who lived a big life, and feels a lot younger than her years  - and a younger person who cannot clearly see the very big road ahead. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
