English professor Charles and his son Michael, a successful author, have always had a strained relationship, with each pushing the other away. On a boyhood road trip, young Michael claims to have lost his glasses, knowing he has them in his pocket. Charles makes him walk home in the rain as punishment. The rule breaking and tit-for-tat continues over the years. Jane, the much younger sister of Charles’s wife, Lisa, stays with them while Lisa is expecting. The baby “boy” later turns out to be a girl, Ryne. Jane has been close with Michael since childhood and sides with him against Charles.

Michael embarrasses Charles in front of the latter’s colleagues by falsely claiming to have written Fireflies in the Garden, a poem by Robert Frost. Charles orders him to hold his weighted arms out horizontally as punishment. Jane later feeds Michael when he’s unable to lift his aching arms. The conflicts build until Michael intervenes in a quarrel between his parents and forces Charles to the ground. In present day, Ryne, now a college senior, picks up Michael at the airport. While Charles and Lisa drive to Jane’s house for a party to celebrate Lisa’s college graduation, Charles swerves to avoid hitting Christopher, Jane’s son. The car hits a telephone pole, killing Lisa and severely injuring Charles.
