Diane Ford (Michelle Monaghan), a vivacious and successful independent truck driver, leads a carefree life of long-haul trucking, one night stands and all-night drinking until the evening her estranged 11-year-old son (Jimmy Bennett) shows up at her door.
Peter hasn’t seen his mother since he was a baby and wants Diane as little as she wants him; but with his father Leonard Bonner (Benjamin Bratt) in the hospital, Diane and Peter are stuck with each other – at least for a while.
Burdened with this new responsibility and seeing the life of freedom she’s fought for jeopardized, Diane steps reluctantly into her past and looks sidelong at a future that is not as simple or straightforward as she had once believed.
Directed and written by James Mottern, Trucker premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 24 and is awaiting further release.
