When his father for the first time finally tells the story of the horrific disaster he has carried with him so long, it leads the two men to reconsider each other.Meanwhile, Noah's own struggle to make a life with an absent father has found its real reward in his relationship with his sagacious wife, Natalie, whose complications with infertility issues have marked her husband's life in ways he only fully realizes as the reconciliation with his father takes shape.
