Jim struggles to run a failing diner in a bad neighborhood. His brother drops by once a week to give him a hard time. On one such visit, they come face to face with a strange shoeless visitor who can barely speak English. Is he a bum? A homeless man? Is he lost? Was he mugged? A searing conflict over how to help the mysterious visitor brings the brothers together on a touching, personal level and they realize just how important family is.
