Idaho. Mormon country.
An estranged daughter, an ex-wife, a lost Mormon Elder, and a mourning sister orbit the life of a 600-pound recluse as he eats his way to his grave over the death of his boyfriend. Charlie knows he’s going to die, but he has a few loose stings to tie up first, along with some fences to mend. He needs answers. He needs assurances. But, has he finally bitten off more than he can chew?
