Description

A frantic phone call from Jan forces her brother Andrew to return home to small-town Dixon, Illinois—the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan—to deal with their ailing mother Mae, an irate “temporary” resident of a nursing home. As Jan struggles to leave town and reclaim her life, she and Mae attempt to navigate through their difficult relationship. Meanwhile, Andrew takes his lover on a guided tour through his childhood haunts, reliving the fear and sorrow that has impacted his life. This sometimes-comic “tour” includes a look inside the home of Jan’s soon-to-be-ex-husband, whose best friend has unusual views on life, love, and when to call the vet. Balancing humor and pain, The End of the Tour is a portrait of people attempting to pull themselves up and out of the disappointment in their lives.
