They say you can't go home again, but sometimes you can't help trying.  When Mitch's father dies, his New York City law firm collapses, and his marriage to Sandi starts to crack under the strain, he is forced to return to the small, upstate town of Nile to dispose of his old home and to deal with the demons he left behind....including a volatile father, an abused mother, and Carol, his first love. 

He can't seem to escape his memories, but when confronted with an odd neighbor, a young hitchhiker, the old abandoned drive-in, and Carol, Mitch finds that sometimes you can find something everlasting, even among the changes.
