The Leisure Seeker is the nickname of the old RV used by Ella and John Spencer to take vacations with their children in the 1970s. Nowadays, at old age and desperate to escape a destiny of medical care, the couple hop on board that vehicle and dashes towards Key West for a new adventure. Their trip through an America they no longer recognize — mixing hilarious moments with others of pure terror — is their chance to retrace a life of passion and devotion, but also by secret obsessions that abruptly resurface. Venice and Toronto 2017.
