After much provocation, the man, played by Bruce Dern, talks his son into driving him to the return address on the letter in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Along the way, they stop in the town in northern Nebraska were the man once lived, and he tells old friends and acquaintances that hes won $1 million, and they recall debts that he owes them. Somewhat comically, fights ensue.

Along the trip, the son learns a lot about his dad, a Korean War veteran. The sometimes exasperated but loving son is moved to do the best he can.

The film is a comedy as well as a drama, with true-to-life conflicts and a touch of wit.

The American Film Institute included Nebraska in their Top 10 films of the year and Dern has won several awards for his lead role, with speculation that he might be nominated for an Oscar. The nominations will be announced Jan. 16.

In Nebraska, filming took place in Allen, Battle Creek, Elgin, Hooper, Lincoln, Lyons, Madison, Norfolk, Osmond, Pierce, Plainview, Stanton and Tilden, all in eastern Nebraska. The film is presented in black and white.

The movie was filmed in November 2012 premiered a year later on Nov. 25 in Norfolk.
