Rick Robinson is a lowly intern at a prestigious Miami law firm who dreams of becoming a partner one day. Eager to impress, he agrees to help the firm's top lawyer, Maxwell McAllister with a favor he really cannot afford. Just five days before the bar exam, Rick finds himself in charge of moving McAllister's dearest possession across the country: his seductive, yet untouchable niece, Michelle. In a less-than-stellar moving van, the mismatched pair begins their cross-country journey. Along the way they encounter numerous obstacles and unforgettable characters, like free-spirited hitchhiker, Orlick Prescott Hope, who, much to Rick's dismay, manage to slow down the journey. Through the experience, Rick begins to realize that there's more to life than becoming a successful lawyer.
