Based on the novel by Richard Russo. In a dying New England mill town, Miles Roby, the affable manager of the local diner finds himself frustrated by family obligations, especially those concerning his cantankerous father and impressionable daughter . Unable to escape the town or the dominating shadow of the town's evil matriarch who owns the restaurant he runs, Miles copes with a recent divorce while piecing together the shared events that shaped the lives of his friends and family. Through his experiences, he begins to get out of his mid-life rut and effect changes that will have a lasting effect on the social fabric of the town.
