Synopsis

Reclusive handyman/janitor Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), who looks after five apartment buildings in Boston, has to return home when his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) suddenly dies. Lee, who lives a solitary and seemingly unhappy existence, once had a wife and children before tragedy struck.

He finds to his dismay that he's been named the legal guardian of his teenage nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges). When Lee returns to Manchester, he must face his painful past, along with his ex-wife (Michelle Williams) and the community of North Shore, many of whom are not happy to see him.
