Frank Lillo lost his beloved wife of sixty years, Mamie. People and places have begun to confuse Frank, especially at Mamie's funeral, where the story begins. One person stands out in Frank's mind: his son, Eddie.
At any moment, Frank knows Eddie will arrive - how could anyone miss his mother's funeral? He stumbles through the crowd of mourners, asking for Eddie like a parent of a child lost to catastrophe.
And then he sees it - a vase filled with white roses, Mamie's favorite flower. Frank reads the card: "We'll see you later, Mom. Love, Eddie."
Frank decides if Eddie can't come to him, he'll go to Eddie. When he reveals his plan to Tina, his granddaughter who just graduated as a registered nurse and became a single mother of Joshua - her "little brown baby" -- she reminds him that Eddie lives in California, a long trip for an eighty-year-old, and especially for someone who has not been invited.
Frank is determined to go and pulls out all stops...
