A Good Man Is Hard To Find "Adversity defines the essence of who we are and who we desire to be!" This can be best realized in the rural southern regions of the United States during the late 19 forties and early fifties. Without a specific location of long-term concentration, this story finds three generations of a family taking a vacation (planning at least) to Florida despite objections from the grandmother. Factor in her impatient son (Bailey), his wife, and two smart-ass children have marginal respect for their grandmother resulting in a crew of authoritative, uncertainty, distant, and manipulative people about to engage on a trip that ends with certain doom for all with a twist indicative of self preservation and ironic irritation. …show more content…
He has no choice to deal with the nagging bickering, and frustration as he has the chore of navigating the family on this doomed trek.
With mild aggravation, Bailey drives down a winding and twisting road remotely traveled with scenic attributes. As the trip continues, Bailey considers and communicates to his mother that he will turn around if the house does not appear soon. Sudden memory confirms that the house was in Tennessee and the subsequent movement-based on slight embarrassment startles the cat that she had concealed before the trip began. While grandma simply tries to hold on to something that peaks her interest in this trip, eagerness and revelation further stresses her son and startles the stowaway cat that should not have made the trip anyway. The cat proves to be the mechanism that turns an already hassle filled trip into a fate filled voyage. This starts chain of events that leads to cat on Bailey 's neck, loss of control of the car, concluding with the car having rolled over. The accident results in the wife and baby getting thrown from the car. Once the dust settles, everyone is found to be in good order outside of the broken shoulder suffered by the mother. In a weird revelation, the daughter (June) is disappointed because no one was hurt or killed. Grandmother crawls out of the car thinking she may have internal injuries. Grandma only considers her well-being and validates my observation of her selfish longings.
