Change your outlook, change your life
Jim (Casey Affleck) begrudgingly returns to his hometown in rural Indiana after failing to make it on his own in New York. Once back, living in his childhood room, he soon remembers why he left: a doting but overbearing mother, a distant father and a depressed older brother. Soon after his homecoming, Jim’s brother is involved in a mysterious car accident and Jim is forced to take his on brother’s duties—working at his parents’ factory and looking after his two neices. Although crippled by these obligations and his own anxieties, a glimmer of hope springs from his developing relationship with a local nurse (Liv Tyler) and her young son. Slowly Jim learns how to move forward without leaving everyone behind.
