This is a complex drama that became a word-of-mouth hit of the specialized feature marketplace. A lonesome widower and college economics professor finds his quiet existence suddenly shaken up when he befriends a pair of illegal immigrants, in the second feature from The Station Agent director Tom McCarthy. When visiting Manhattan, the professor is surprised to discover that a young couple has moved into his seldom-used apartment in Greenwich Village. Walter reluctantly allows the couple to remain in his apartment. The young man insists on repaying his host's kindness by teaching him to play the African drum. The ageing academic finds his spirits revitalized but must deal with abrupt changes when his new friend is threatened with deportation.
