"Cybill Shepherd and James Brolin bring a Marvellous Chemistry.”
Rose Jones (CYBILL SHEPHERD), 67, is a mom, and ex- cop. She is also a widow, desperately lonely since her husband died. Rose is a person who has played it “safe” all of her life; never a bold adventurer, or a chance taker. All that changes when, informed that she has a crippling illness, decides to “escape” by taking a solo road trip -- in her wheelchair. Her friends (the girls on her bowling team) are horrified, telling Rose that her plan is “scary!” Rose declares: “It’s scarier to stay here!”
Defiant, Rose takes off alone, onto the back roads that wind through the magnificent New Mexico landscape; through small towns and villages, where she stops to rest at health spas. At one spa Rose encounters Lilly (PAM GRIER), 68, a free-spirited hippie. Lilly reminds Rose of life’s forgotten pleasures and surprises, which Rose has not experienced in years.
Rose then meets Max (JAMES BROLIN), 70, a handsome, charming cowboy/ rancher. Max falls for Rose (her beauty -- and her curious mode of transportation). He charms her. They fall in love. Through Max, Rose rediscovers the magic of romance.
