A struggling writer's encounter with his estranged father in a Boston homeless shelter leads to a painful personal conflict.

ABSTRACT
Nick Flynn, a twenty-something writer struggling to find his place in the world, happens upon his absent father while wiling away the hours working at Boston homeless shelter. The unlikely encounter serves to bring thoughts of his strained relationship with the elder Flynn -- a self-proclaimed "poet" in his own right -- back to the forefront of his mind along with memories of his deceased mother, leading to a measure of emotional self-examination for a man with more than enough to worry about already sitting on his plate.
