A mystic comedy that celebrates family bonds in the face of dissolution, new life in the face of death, and art as a response to mortality.

Wallace Blossom, a middle-aged composer who teaches at Juilliard, hasn't written a note in years. Charlotte, his wife, suffers from hot flashes and dreams of crying babies. Together with their colourful children, twelve-year-old Turner and nine-year-old Pony, they set out to drive across country to visit Charlotte's dying aunt, a renowned artist. Approaching Zanzibar shows us the journey that both reveals and renews their lives.
