Richard Morris learns that his former wife, Irene, has entered a Long Island hospice and wishes to see him before she dies. Surprisingly, she has named him her executor. For two weeks he embraces his duties, visits Irene's bedside, and seeks reconciliation with their angry son, Henry. As Irene's death approaches, family and friends gather to support her. Richard feels drawn ever more deeply into their lives. Yet his place within their circle is uncertain until the final moments of his trip to the past-when he must confront a faulty memory, bitter grievances, and the stunning truth about his life.
