Natty lives in Chicago during the Depression with her father. When her dad goes across the country to Washington to find work, Natty must stay until he can send for her. Soon after however, Natty runs away to be with her dad. The movie follows her journey as she bravely crosses the country. The story overall was fine and I am always up for watching John Cusack (his voice is just so soothing!). Although, at times felt ready for it to get moving forward.
