Penny Rush has problems. Her marriage is over, sheâ€™s quit her job, her parents have been missing in the Australian outback for five years and now sheâ€™s back home in Santa Barbara, dealing with mounting family crises and living out of a borrowed van named The Dog of the North.
The Dog is replete with gingham curtains, wood panelling, a piÃ±ata, clunky brakes and difficult steering. Itâ€™s also Pennyâ€™s getaway car from the curveballs lifeâ€™s throwing at her. With an uncertain future ahead of her, could the road sheâ€™s on lead her back to herself?
