Drama about a widower trying to get over his loss and keep his family together. Landscape gardener Jim Winters (Anthony LaPaglia) prefers an orderly life. His family, however, is anything but orderly. Older son Gabe (Aaron Stanford) is planning his escape to Florida, leaving behind any shot at a stable future with his girlfriend. Younger son Pete (Mark Webber) has retreated into a private world of anger, drift and disappointment. Jim struggles watching his sons make choices he views as disastrous compromises. It is only when he meets his new neighbour, Molly (Allison Janney), that Jim finds a way to deal with his own life and his family's future.
