Nomadland film Storyline

Plot Summary & Review

Fern loses her job in 2011 when the US Gypsum plant in Empire, Nevada, closes; she had worked there for years with her husband, who had lately passed away. Fern sells most of her stuff and buys a van to live in while looking for work around the country. During the winter, she works at an Amazon fulfillment center as a seasonal employee.

Fern is invited to a desert meeting in Arizona organized by Bob Wells, which provides a support structure and community for fellow nomads, by Linda, a friend, and coworker. Fern initially declines, but as the weather becomes colder and she tries to find work in the area, she reconsiders. Fern joins other nomads there and learns basic road survival and self-sufficiency skills.

When Fern’s vehicle blows a tire, she goes to a local nomad named Swankie’s van and asks for a ride into town to get a replacement. Swankie chastises Fern for not being prepared and asks her to learn more road survival techniques; the two become good friends. Swankie informs Fern about her cancer diagnosis and shortening life expectancy, as well as her plan to build happy experiences on the road rather than rot in a hospital. They split ways at some point.

Fern eventually works as a camp host in Badlands National Park’s Cedar Pass Campground, where she meets Dave, another nomad she met and danced with back in the desert settlement. He’s working at Badlands National Park on a temporary basis, but when he gets diverticulitis, Fern pays him a visit to the hospital where he’s undergone emergency surgery. They go on to work at Wall Drug in South Dakota as waiters and waitresses. Dave’s son comes into the restaurant one night looking for him, telling him that his wife is expecting a kid and inviting him to meet his granddaughter. He hesitates, but Fern persuades him to go. Dave invites her to join him, but she declines.

Fern starts a new job at a sugar beet processing plant, but her van breaks down, and she is unable to pay for repairs. She visits her sister’s family in California because she is unable to borrow money. Her sister is the one who lends her the money. She wonders why Fern was never in their life and why she stayed in Empire after her husband died, but she praises Fern for being so self-sufficient. Fern subsequently pays a visit to Dave and his son’s family, when she learns that Dave has opted to live with them permanently. He admits to having feelings for her and invites her to live with him in a guest house for the rest of her life, but she decides to leave after only a few days and head to the beach.

Fern resumes her seasonal Amazon job and returns to the Arizona rendezvous later. Swankie has died, and she and the other nomads pay respect to her life by throwing stones into the blaze. Bob learns of Fern’s close relationship with her late husband, and he learns about his son’s death. Bob believes that in the nomad culture, goodbyes are never permanent because everyone always promises to see one other “down the road.”

Fern comes to Empire, a practically abandoned town, to dispose of the possessions she had been storing in a storage facility, sometime later. Before returning on the road, she pays a visit to the factory and the house she shared with her husband.
