Katherine- "Kate" has a vision: she wants to create a museum in Chicago dedicated to John Hughes. But her friends and family think she is batshit crazy. She knows nothing about starting a museum and feels like Judd Nelson is just the person to help her with that. He just doesn't know it yet.
Valerie- "Val" wonders why there were hardly any black people in John Hughes movies and for this reason is boycotting the museum idea. Until she meets the guy who played Carl the janitor. Then she's all in.
Regina- Regina loves John Hughes and his movies, so she goes along Kate's road trip idea because it's a great way to get away from her children for a week. Regina is also related to a beloved character from Sixteen Candles. She just doesn't know it yet.
