Ten years after the loss of Bobby -- the Amendola family's youngest son -- the fire-fighter's Italian-Irish American family is still struggling to recover from his death. Bobby's mother Gail, his widow Tina, his older brothers Peter, the corporate lawyer, and Franky, the misfit, and his father, Michael, have dealt with their grief in different ways. But as the family gathers on Staten Island for Bobby Jr.'s birthday, they must each find a way to accept a new man in Tina's life while reconciling their feelings for their lost loved one.
