In this drama, the well-ordered life of a computer whiz provides him with enormous satisfaction and enables him to avoid dealing with the issues he had with his deceased father, who was a hands-on tinkerer of the blue-collar sort. When his advanced computer skills fail to protect him during a corporate takeover, he and his family visit his father's old homestead, and it becomes clear that he still doesn't properly appreciate his personal history since he is seriously considering selling the land his dad's tool shed is on. Still unable to find "proper" work as a computer engineer, the desperate man starts a food-delivery business and at the same time gets closer to his heritage and his family.
