His glory days are little more than a fading memory, and lately he's fallen into a dangerous alcoholic daze. One night, after returning to his old hometown to commit suicide, something truly remarkable happens to Chick. At the very moment he's about to take his own life, Chick's mother Posey (Burstyn) appears before him to spend one last day with her beloved son. During their brief reunion, Chick's mother illuminates the secrets of their lives, allowing her son one last chance for deliverance and an opportunity to turn his life around.
