"Conrad. Let's have a great Christmas. Let's have... a great year. Let's have the best year of our whole lives. We can, you know... this could be the best one ever."

– Karen

The story concerns the disintegration of an upper-middle class family in Lake Forest, Illinois, following the death of one of their sons in a boating accident. In this film, teenager Timothy Hutton lives under a cloud of guilt after his older brother drowns while trying to rescue the suicide-prone Hutton. Despite intensive therapy sessions, Hutton can't shake the belief that he should have died instead of his brother; nor do his preoccupied parents offer much solace.
