Rob is a man who lives a miserable life made of sacrifices with his family. The turning point comes when he finally decides to publish a book inspired by the moving experience of his father-in-law's death. At first his book will not get great fame but later Rob will find himself having to travel around the world submerged by important conferences and meetings with curious readers and authors. This unfortunately will lead him to put his loved ones in the background and to separate from his wife. To bring him back down to earth will be an elderly gentleman who will point out to him what he is losing, foreseeing his near death. Therefore, he will no longer be able to reconcile with his family if he does not put his interests aside. This man looks like an angel sent by God to get Rob back on the right path. Later it will be discovered that the alleged angel is in truth an ordinary mortal, but a very important element for the story, without which the protagonist would no longer be able to get close to his loved ones. The film ends with a pleasant happy ending: Rob hugs his wife and beloved daughter again, after asking for forgiveness from his abandoned father for years.
