Based on a true story that proves that a little determination goes a very long way, The Straight Story follows a retired farmer and widower in his 70s, Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth), who learns one day that his distant brother Lyle (Harry Dean Stanton) has suffered a stroke and may not recover. Alvin is determined to make things right with Lyle while he still can, but his brother lives in Wisconsin, while Alvin is stuck in Iowa with no car and no driver's license due to fading eyesight. When he hits on the idea of making the trip on his old lawnmower, he begins an epic journey that is both picturesque and deeply spiritual.
