In 1974, 18-year-old John (Trevor Morgan) discovers that once-famous landscape painter Nicholi Seroff (Armin Mueller-Stahl) lives in his small town in New York state. Though Nicholi is a recluse, John talks his way into the artist's house with a bottle of vodka. After Nicholi warms to the young man, he offers John a chance to spend the summer with him at his Pennsylvania country house, in exchange for doing the housework. John agrees, and once there he falls for neighbor Carla (Samantha Mathis).
