An estranged middle-aged father arrives back into his childhood town after 20 years for the first time. He attempts to reconnect with his son, whom he abandoned as a toddler, over a high stakes pool game. The son is not aware of the stranger’s true identity. As the game progresses, the tension mounts and the conversation crystalizes both men’s emotional states and how they dealt with abandonment. Haunted by their past, a reconnection is questionable whether there is a future between them or not.
