Boy is a story about a few weeks in the lives of Hugh and Betty Roberts, an elderly couple living alone on their family farm in Iowa. They are buried deep in the grief over the loss of their only child and struggling to hang onto the only life they have ever known when dementia sneaks in.
An unusual visitor brings a welcome distraction and reprieve just before Thanksgiving. Join this couple and a few unforgettable characters as they prepare to share in a memorable and much needed Thanksgiving gathering at the old couple's farm. What transpires is credited to friendship, love, and the relentless power of hope. Directly or indirectly, we are reminded of what really matters on this brief walk we call life.
