Successful lawyer Michael Pierson (Aidan Quinn) is gay, but he has always hidden this part of his life from his mother, Katherine (Gena Rowlands), father, Nick (Ben Gazzara), and grandmother Beatrice (Sylvia Sidney). But when Michael discovers he has AIDS and is dying of complications from the disease, he must open up to his parents and the rest of his family.
