Marvin returns to the small American town where he grew up after spending seventeen years in prison for murder. Although in terms of the law he has paid his debt to society, his victim's family remains unable to forgive him. To make things more complicated, his mother's health is deteriorating. But Marvin does not give up hope; forgiveness and redemption can come from the least expected places. Kathy Bates excels as the ailing mother in this moving drama.
