Minutes from the Blue Route unfolds over the course of one weekend as a family packs and unpacks their house, trying to consolidate four lives into one U-Haul truck

While tripping over each other on the way to work, weddings, picnics, trains and planes, each family member discovers more about themselves and each other

Tempers flare, truths emerge, and dreams collide with reality, as they all wrestle with their fears and defend their definition of "home"
