A Trip to Bountiful tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman who longs to return to her beloved hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one last time. Carrie’s controlling son, Ludie, and demanding daughter-in-law, Jessie Mae, forbid her to leave. However, while her son and daughter-in-law are gone for the day, Carrie flees to the bus station where she meets a young woman named Thelma. Together, the new friends travel toward Bountiful together, but when Carrie arrives in nearby Harrison, Texas, she discovers her beloved town isn’t the same as she remembered it.
