Charley Benetto (Michael Imperioli) played for the New York Mets, but, since he left the big leagues, he's been drinking too much and rarely gets to see his daughter (Lexie Drago). Resolved to end his suffering, Charley plans to kill himself in the town where he grew up. But once there he encounters the spirit of his late mother, Pauline (Ellen Burstyn).
