Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.Written by
The movie used real Manchester Fire Department and EMS personnel in the film. They identified and corrected procedural mistakes and called most of the shots involving the fire department. See more »

In Australia, the film was originally passed MA-15+ uncut, however the distributors opted to re-edit the audio and cut the length of the film, in order to remove every use of the term 'c-t' and 'motherf--er'. Following these changes the film was later re-classified and the rating was lowered to 'M'. See more »
Very real, great acting, sweet and moving. Beautiful scenery tbh. I wish the ending had been a little different, but I guess it was meant to leave it up in the air for your own imagination. Well played by the casts.
