Plot Summary
After his estranged son, Henry (Bill Pullman), returns a damaged man from the front lines of World War II, Jake Tibbetts (Barnard Hughes), a cantankerous Southern newspaper editor, struggles with the distance between reality and his own unreasonable expectations for his family. Tibbetts tests the patience of those closest to him -- including his wife (Sada Thompson) and his oldest friend (Robert Prosky) -- as he skirts the edges of sanity in the face of rapidly changing times.
