Elle is an aging poet and lesbian who has just broken up with her younger partner. Shortly after the break-up, she finds her grand-daughter on her doorstep. The girl, Sage, is 18 years-old, pregnant and broke. She also needs a ride to an abortion clinic.  It turns out that Elle is a former hippie who had come of age in the 1960s. She is therefore at least as liberal as her granddaughter and is quite willing to help her out -- despite not having much money herself. Sage can't get help from her parents, and Elle doesn't get along with her daughter, who is Sage's mother. The film portrays all three generations of women as independent people capable of making decisions about their lives and bodies.  Sage and Elle embark on a road trip to raise the $600 needed to pay for the abortion and get Sage to the abortion clinic. Along the way, they get to know one another better. Elle has built up defenses over the years and developed a misanthropic persona, and she confronts her past during the journey, including her grief over the death of her long-term partner. Sage has to make decisions about her future. During the trip, the two women encounter Karl, an old friend of Elle's who is also a former hippie.
