The scene is a three-room shack at the end of a broken train rail, where dwell a careworn mother named Nan (Anna Karen), her dreamy-eyed son Doug (Donald Losby), her cynical daughter Callie (Candy Moore), and Grandpa (Edgar Stehli), a former railroad worker who talks only of the past. Despite their squalid surroundings, Grandpa assures the children that life is worthwhile if they only have the patience to "look and listen"; he also promises little Doug that he'll never leave him without saying goodbye. But Grandpa dies before keeping his promise, breaking Doug's heart...until a strange and wonderful manifestation occurs.
