The hero and his love interest, on the run from police and federal officials due to a BIG misunderstanding as to the injuries incurred by a store manager.  When the couple goes on the run, they rescue the hero’s grandfather (played by Jeremy Irons) from a nursing home, in the hope of re-uniting the bachelor and veteran grandfather with his one true love, who is located across the country.  In route, the hero decides to visit various roadside attractions (hence the title Monumental). Also in route, they adopt a puppy and another wayward soul.  The curmudgeonly grandfather saves the now love-struck couple from the overly-zealous FBI agent and facilitates their escape, but he pays the ultimate, and wanted, price to do so.
