Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of George Washaki, a Native American who finds himself in jail with his grandfather. They had been arrested when George stole a pickup truck to help his grandfather run away from his nursing home and go back to his ancestral lands. The old man is dying and he does not want to die anywhere else. Sam decides to help him and they escape from jail setting off a manhunt. Along the way, Sam learns a little bit about himself as the old man dispenses wisdom that is applicable to both Sam as well as his grandson. Written by garykmcd
