When his mother dies, Mercer White (Lou Taylor Pucci), a 19 year-old teenager takes a road-trip in a stolen car to find his half-brother, Arlen (Jsu Garcia) who's he lost contact with long ago. He hasn't gone far in his quest when a cell phone rings out and is none other than the car's owner, Kate (Zooey Deschanel).
Instead of threatening to call the police, Kate strikes a deal with Mercer. In return for using her car he has to phone her and relay his experiences throughout the trip like a daily progress report. So despite ending up with a car from then on virtually nothing seems to go according to plan...
Travelling from the American West - from Oregon to Nevada, through California and ultimately into Ensenada, Mexico - it is Kate who seems to be his mainstay on this life changing pursuit of his brother Arlen.
With a soundtrack boasting some of the biggest names in the indie music scene, a score by M Ward and shot in the beautiful plains of the Mid-West, THE GO-GETTER is a road trip worth taking.
