Griffin is driving to Cape Cod, where he will meet his wife for the wedding of their daughter’s best friend. In the trunk of his car are his father’s ashes which he plans to scatter at a place his father loved; their yearly vacation spot. The Cape also reminds him of his honey-moon, and the Great Truro Accord, the plan he and his bride made for their lives together, and he wonders why it seems they’ve been drifting apart. A year later brings another drive, to another wedding, with another urn of ashes in the trunk, and his life and marriage hanging in the balance. A beautiful, thoughtful, sad, uplifting story.
