Plot Synopsis

Pete 'Skag' Skagska is a 56-year-old steel-mill foreman in Pittsburgh who struggles with contemporary life. He must care for his father, who suffered a debilitating stroke, and a large family with children who don't necessarily share his traditional values. When Skag also suffers a stroke, he is temporarily forced to stay home and deal with many of these issues.
