Synopsis:

The movie starts with Lee Chandler working as a janitor to survive. He is truly just surviving as he takes no pleasure in life, lives in a sparsely furnished apartment and drinks until he can tune out the whole world.  His existence is changed one morning, when he receives a phone call from George (a family friend) informing him that Lee’s beloved older brother, Joe has suffered a heart attack. By the time he rushes to his hometown, he learns that he has died. He is shocked to learn, that his brother’s wish was that he would take care of his only son, Patrick. Lee is entirely sure that he cannot fulfill the responsibility of parenting a teenager, as he is emotionally damaged, in immeasurable grief and is still recovering from a tragedy. Patrick, who is in the college hockey team, has two girlfriends and a band has always been raised by his loving father, Joe, since his alcoholic mother ran away. Then is revealed the reason why Lee is in such infinite misery and why he refuses to take up the responsibility of Patrick. Lee had a wife, Randi and two daughters and an infant son, who perished in a fire in the house caused by Lee in an intoxicated state. Since then he is enveloped by remorse, guilt and depression. His emotional turmoil and remorse are the reason he refuses the responsibility of raising Patrick. The movie revolves around Patrick and Lee who are grieving partners and whose lives have been turned upside down due to the death of Joe. Patrick tries to bring Lee back from his depression and tries to convince him to become his guardian whereas Lee still cannot get over the grief and guilt of his children’s death. Their relationship is like a roller coaster ride, as they make arrangements for Joe’s funeral, make decisions about Joe’s boat and each tries to improve the others love life. The movie shows how people deal with pain, not just normal temporary pain, but the heart wrenching and the everlasting pain of losing your loved ones. Though dealing with such intense emotions, the movie is marked by humor as Patrick and Lee learn to live with one another.
