Synopsis

Winter of 1993 — Alaska State Park Ranger Clay Blakely leaves the court house in Palmer, Alaska a single man. His divorce is final. His thoughts turn to his son Kevin and what the future may hold. What’s a single, middle aged man with a 4 year old son going to do? His funds are low because as a park ranger he works only seasonally. Many jobs in Alaska are seasonal, it’s the nature of the state. As he drives home he notices the winter white of Alaska around him. He thinks of Mexico and Puerto Vallarta where he and Debbie had yearned to go on a vacation as soon as they could afford it. The winter wind whistles across the road hurling bursts of snow in front of his truck.

The sound of snow crunching under the truck’s tires brings him back to reality. He glances out the driver’s side window as he slows the truck to a stop at the last intersection in town before entering the Palmer/Wasilla highway to home.

His eye catches the sign in the “Round the World” travel agency window, “Vacation in Mexico, reasonable air fares, and lodging available.”

Once in Mexico he meets someone whose company he really enjoys. His dating skills are clumsy as he has been out of the dating scene for quite some time. But, fearing that a 6,000 plus mile relationship would never work he and Kevin leave Puerto Vallarta without even saying goodbye. Or, so Clay thinks as he and Kevin board their flight back to Anchorage, Alaska.
