A man estranged from his family returns after ten years of separation to attend his mother's funeral.

Zach Braff's turn towards "arthouse" roles following his decidedly mainstream success with Scrubs finds him portraying Andrew Largeman, a moderately successful television actor shaken up by news of his disabled mother's death back home. Estranged from his family and off his emotionally-inhibiting antidepressants, Andrew settles in for a decidedly different sort of homecoming, encouraged to see life from a new perspective in the presence of old faces and absence of familiar medications.
