Vincent's life consists of visiting his beloved wife who has Alzheimer's, drinking to excess, and gambling to earn enough money to cover his bills. Into this lonely existence the Spirit sends Oliver; a 12-year-old boy in need of a babysitter and a friend.

Oliver and his mother Maggie move in next door, and they need Vincent as much as he needs them. Vincent is self-serving, rude, and generally unkind to most everyone in his life, including Oliver. Oliver immediately sees through these perceptions and aligns in a miracle working attitude of overlooking the error. This pair of unlikely companions help each other out through all kinds of situations, and somehow, they make it through.

Beneath anger is sadness. Beneath depression is loneliness. Beneath the surface behaviors that attempt to push people away is a call for love. When the call is heard, and met with love, the blessing touches everyone's heart.

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
