Andrew Largeman has almost forgotten how to feel. When he was nine, he pushed his mother in anger; the resulting injury caused her paralysis. His psychiatrist father put him on medications after that, and he has spent years in emotional numbness. Now living in Los Angeles and working as a waiter, Andrew has recently made the decision to take himself off medications. Then he goes home for his mother’s funeral in New Jersey where feelings finally begin to awaken. He is helped through this by friends Mark and Sam. Mark is an old school friend, and Sam is a confused but loving young woman whom Andrew meets at the doctor’s office. With their help, Andrew moves past his guilt and embraces life again.
