Once an idealistic and ambitious academic, Professor Lawrence Wetherhold (Quaid) lost his passion for
teaching when he lost his wife. Hunkered-down behind his books, Wetherhold has forgotten how to
connect, even with his daughter, the acerbically witty Vanessa (Page). Suddenly a head injury sends
Wetherhold to the emergency room where his world spins out of his control. Forced to depend on his
brother (Church), a freeloading oddball, for transportation, Wetherhold is surprised to find himself
attracted to his ER doctor and former ex-student (Parker) and begins to emerge from his isolation—with
surprising consequences for the entire family.
