Land of Plenty stars John Diehl and Michelle Williams as two very different people who are brought together for an unconventional road trip. The film takes place after September 11, 2001, and the main characters are dealing with their grief in very different ways. Paul (Diehl) keeps his paranoid eye on the lookout for terrorists wherever he goes. His niece Lana, (Williams) does charity work for the indigent. After a young Muslim is shot dead, the uncle and niece travel together – her to bring the body back to the family, he to wipe out the terrorists he is convinced the young man worked with.
