Oliver (Ewan McGregor) meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anne (Mélanie Laurent) only months after his father Hal (Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who—after 44 years of marriage—came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life.

The upheavals of Hal's new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they'd ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.
