Elizabethtown is about the industrial designer Drew Baylor who is fired from his work in an important international shoe company after the failure of his project.

Drew goes to his apartment, and defeated, attempts to commit suicide. However, his sister calls and tells him that his father has just died and he has to go to Elizabethtown, Kentucky, to bring the body back home.

At the airport, a quick-witted flight attendant, Claire gives him a free seat in first class, because she doesn't want to have to walk all the way back to coach just for him. After he moves, Claire starts talking to him, and draws him a map to get to Elizabethtown, writing her phone number on its back.

Drew arrives at the funeral home, where he sees various members of his family. He insists on honouring his mother's wishes for a cremation, but he soon changes his mind, but it is too late.

Drew then decides to return home to commit suicide but Claire prevents him and gives him a map, with instructions and CDs, guiding him "home", with notes along the way to visit certain places. Finally, the directions come to a point where he is given two choices - to continue home or to finish the journey Claire laid out for him.

Drew chooses to continue the journey. He is instructed to go to the "Second Largest Farmer's Market in The World" and locates a note telling him to "look for the girl with a red hat". After looking desperately for a few minutes, he finds Claire.

This movie is rated PG-13.
