Audie Barrack is in it up to his elbows with a sick calf when his son’s school calls. Seems Grainger has gotten into yet another fight. When he walks into the principal’s office, he’s shocked to find his son has been fighting with a little girl named Randi.
A little girl with one blind dad and one dad who recently passed away.
Dixon has lost his sight, his career, and his husband. Thank God for his brothers, Momma and Daddy, and his little girl, or he would simply give up. The last thing he needs is for Randi to start trouble at school, especially trouble that puts him in contact with another dad who might expect him to be a functional human being.
Dixon is struggling to live as a blind man, Audie is terrified someone might see he has a closet to come out of, and everyone from the school to both men’s families is worried for the men and their children. Unless they get themselves together and commit to change, neither of them stands a chance.
What a brilliant story of growth on everyone’s part. Adults, children alike. The lashing out of the daughter, the father just wanting to love and protect her. The father of the son of that was attacked, the coming together and realizing of the same struggles, dreams and wants. Both men wanting to help each other, love each other and yet feeling each other is not worthy for very different reasons.
The grandparents and parents not understanding the connection that these two have found with one another. And doing everything in there power to stop it, which in the end will destroyer grow the very thing they are trying to break.
The narration is some of the best I’ve ever heard. Some many different voices, children, men, women. Old and young. Gay and straight. Just a wonderful job
