May and Raleigh meet in 1940 on a passenger car of the eastbound, cross-country train carrying the newly deceased bodies of famous writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Nathanael West. Unable to enlist in the military because of a medical condition, Raleigh wants to be a writer and head to New York; May wants to be a missionary and return home. The two share a seat and discover they are from neighboring towns in Kentucky and that both of their lives are not going to plan. In their honest, tender, funny, and at time prickly relationship that spans years, these two young people navigate each other, the times they live in, and the bumps life throws their way.
