A young man, stifled by regret, returns to his city unable to move
forward in his life. By bonding with a grieving elderly man, he
understands the importance of faith and forgiving his own absent
father. But the bond they share is far greater than the
bereavement of a father son relationship.
Nico was on the verge of a successful writing career but one
drunken night changed everything. Now back from his sabbatical, he
stays with longtime friend, Kana. She offers advice which sets him
in motion to come clean to Bobbie, who was affected by the
accident. Before he can do so, a bond forms between them.
Nico’s father, Tommy, has been released from prison and longs
for a relationship with him but is dying of cancer. While
frequenting Dr. Darlene for his treatment, a romance buds between
them, as they both share one commonality - Her daughter, Bonnie,
has run away from home and now lives on the streets. In between
Tommy’s parole meetings and serendipitous encounters with a former
boss of his, he finds Bonnie unconscious in an alley and cares for
her how he wishes he could care for his own son.
For the first time since the accident, Nico’s guard’s let down,
allowing for a romantic interest with Kana as well as a father son
relationship with Bobbie. Everything comes to a denouement once
Nico finally tells Bobbie the truth. A long absence between them
occurs which gives Nico the insight to find his faith and forgive
his own father. Kana announces she’s pregnant through a drawing
encouraged by Nico, but as happy as he is, he can’t shake his
hollow heart from the hiatus from Bobbie. He then writes a story
that Bobbie sought to start but never finished.
Having now rekindled with his son and in a relationship with
Darlene, Tommy’s bamboozled into one last job which could get him
killed or sent back to prison. Bonnie’s turned her life around and
Nico’s finished his book. He meets Bobbie for the last time,
accrediting his faith to him and receiving his forgiveness.
The day of Tommy’s surgery, he and Nico hug for the first time
and secure the relationship they never had, but is it too late?
The answer comes one year later after Kana’s given birth to
their baby, Nico visits a grave and Bonnie and Darlene help clean
out Tommy’s house. All concludes through the elderly wise verse
Bobbie wrote in his book attempt: I’ll love you until love dies,
then I’ll create love just to love you again.
