Frankie Hermans winds up in a six month long coma after a suicide attempt. When he wakes up he can only use his right arm, which he uses to report on the events happening in his town. One detail that changes Frankie’s delving into the otherwise boring town is Joe, a charismatic person who shows Frankie there is more that he can do with his handicap than documenting the events of the people he lives with.
