Cloudburst stars Oscar winning actresses Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker as Stella and Dot, an aging couple who escape from a nursing home in Maine and drive to Nova Scotia on a quest to be legally married. Stella and Dot have been together for 31 years and have faithfully accompanied one another through life's ups and downs. Now in their seventies, Stella is hard of hearing and Dot is legally blind. Dotty's prudish granddaughter, Molly (Kristin Booth), decides the best place for Dot is a nursing home that will provide all the necessities. This forces Stella and Dot to make a bold decision: they will leave their hometown and make their way to Canada, where same-sex marriage is legal. It's a last-gap bid to stay together.
En route to Canada, they pick up a young hitchhiker, Prentice. A small-town boy turned modern dancer, who is returning to Nova Scotia to visit his dying mother. Despite his bravado, he is a confused and wounded soul who has much to learn from Stella and Dot as they wage their own unexpected battle: after three decades, can they keep their family together?
