Al Fountain is a methodic and somewhat neurotic engineer. On the way home from work after leaving his construction site, he takes a side trip for nostalgia's sake in the woodland area. There he meets Buck "The Kid", an eccentric character who gives him a new perspective on his life.

The hotel that Turturro's character stays at during his trip is still an actual operating hotel in Maryville, Tennessee, that is still named the 411 Motel, on Hwy 411. Many of the scenes were shot in South Knoxville near Seymour.
Most of the in-town driving scenes were filmed in East and North Knoxville, Maryville, and Alcoa. Many of the routes are not consistent.
The 1998 Lions Gate release includes a "secret" commentary by Tom DiCillo that is not listed on the packaging.
