A father no longer hears from a son who left home a long time ago. One day a stranger arrives at the door with a boy, Anthony, and tells him that this is his grandson. It is his distant son who has sent the boy to him so he can help him recover from an illness and bring him up for as long as he stays with him. This becomes, through the grandson, the father’s opportunity to renew contact with the son he believed he had lost. Between father and son and with Anthony there develops a very delicate, deep and special relationship.
