The patriarch of the Lair family, Henry (Michael Caine) is approaching death.  For the first time in 30 years each generation of the family is in one place without conflict.  Before Henry passes, he instructs his offspring to travel from Los Angeles to New Mexico sprinkling his ashes along the way. 

Henry also fills a paper bag with post-it notes, each with a different mission.  As his progeny travels to spread the ashes, they pull one post-it note from the bag and act upon what is written.  Through this journey generations of pain could begin to heal.
