Sherwin considers himself a good man, though flawed like any other. He is deeply in love with his wife, Fiona. When she starts acting distant after returning from a visit with her estranged and ill mother, he shows concern. Soon, their conversations lead to fights, the worst in their marriage. He learns that she can no longer imagine herself as a mother, leaving him confused and angry and their marriage in splinters. Before there can be resolution, Fiona dies in an auto accident after driving distractedly on the freeway. Sherwin is devastated. All that is dear to him, his wife, his sense of self and his future, vanish. In the middle of his grief, Sherwin receives a phone call from the person he least expects, Fiona’s mother. She invites him to visit her in rural Maine, saying: “It might do us both some good.” Sherwin decides to go to Maine, and embarks on an unlikely journey of healing, compassion and empathy.
