Sammy Prescott (Laura Linney), a divorced single mother who lives with her eight-year-old son Rudy (Rory Culkin) in upstate New York, is overjoyed when her wandering brother Terry (Mark Ruffalo) turns up for a visit. Terry is well-known for his irregular, untrustworthy nature and his habitual borrowing of money, but Sammy loves him dearly and soon notices that he is becoming a surrogate father for her young son. Thus partially liberated from her single parenthood Sammy embarks on a fling with her boss, but ultimately Terry rediscovers his capacity to let down his 'new family', and does so with dramatic consequences.
