For the first time in 40 years, Augie, now retired military, returns to his hometown for his high school reunion, having been driven from the family home shortly after graduation by intolerable conditions. At the reunion, egged on by his childhood friend Frankie, a drunken Augie hatches a plan to break into his old home in the dead of night to retrieve a long forgotten but now-valuable baseball card he secreted there as a child. Augie is caught in the act by a woman who turns out to be his sister, April, who – unbeknownst to Augie – has remained in the home alone since the death of their parents. In the turmoil that follows, Augie and April stir the ashes of their troubled childhood in search of meaning, if not peace.
