Frank is a retired Lt Col in the US army. He's also a blind alcoholic man who challenges anyone who comes near him. Charlie has a scholarship to a boarding prep school. He is a reliable, hardworking student who needs to earn money to help pay for the trip home for Christmas, so he accepts a job as a caregiver for Frank over Thanksgiving weekend. Although Frank's niece tells Charlie this will be a breeze, she has no idea that Frank plans on spending this Thanksgiving in Manhattan.
