Wendy Carroll and her faithful dog, Lucy are travelling to Ketchikan, Alaska, in search of a new life and much needed cash from some seasonal summer work with the Northwestern Fish cannery company. When disaster strikes as her car breaks down in Oregon, her lack of savings and ready cash test her resilience as she is forced to confront a series of increasingly dire economic decisions.
WENDY AND LUCY addresses issues of sympathy and generosity at the edges of American life, revealing the limits and depths of people's duty to each other in tough times.
