Uncle Bob lives in New York as an uproariously articulate hermit, separated from the wife to whom he is devoted—and who is devoted to him. He is visited by his nephew, Josh, who is without a job, without a completed college education, and without any sense of a future, all of which he faces with a wit and nervy desperation that finds its only match in his Uncle Bob. Uncle Bob has AIDS, and Josh has hitched from the Midwest, uninvited (profoundly uninvited), to take care of him. A loving and funny, abrasive and profane face-off ensues.
