Bob Ivanovich, a young son of Ukrainian-American parents, prays one night for a circus in his backyard the next day after school. After school the next day, he runs home eagerly, followed by his friends. To his disappointment, no circus awaits. Angrily, Bob retreats to the closet in his room, his personal retreat space. Bob has shunned his Ukrainian-born parents for their immigrant ways and decided to move away from his family in Detroit. Thirty years later, Bob Jones now runs a Los Angeles public relations firm. He is happily married to Gail, who is pregnant with their first child. Bob is horrified to learn that he has been diagnosed with a terminal form of kidney cancer and might not live to see their baby born.

Bob begins to make home movies, to immortalize himself, to be shown after his death to his son, so he’ll know who his father was, showing him how to cook spaghetti, how to drive, etc. He also begins to visit a Chinese healer named Mr. Ho who urges him to listen to his heart, which is calling him to forgive, and that life is always giving him invitations if he would just listen. At his wife’s urging, they fly to his hometown of Detroit to attend a traditional Ukrainian wedding of his brother Paul . While in the area, Bob visits his childhood home. Also while there, they attempt to mend fences with his estranged family, which does not go well. Bob criticizes his brother for not moving to California like he did, and his father resents Bob’s moving thousands of miles away and changing his name.
