Carnegie Mellon English Professor Lawrence Wetherhold is a widowed parent of an alienated college son, James, overachieving high school daughter, Vanessa, and sibling to an adopted ne’er-do-well brother, Chuck who he cannot evade enough. He is bitter, arrogant, self-absorbed and uninterested in his students. This becomes a problem when he parks illegally on campus. The car is impounded and he does not pay the fine before getting to the college impound lot, watched by a disgruntled former student. Lawrence has a trauma-induced seizure after falling from the top of a fence after retrieving his briefcase from inside the impounded car.

In the emergency room, he is treated by Dr. Janet Hartigan, a former student he does not remember. Lawrence has to get about without being able to operate his car; his brother Chuck is without a place to sleep and a job, so Vanessa sets it up for what he characterizes as a “win/win” situation.
