Lee works as a caretaker/janitor in a Boston suburb. He’s a depressive loner whose temper blows with little provocation. When his older brother suddenly dies, Lee has to return to his home town of Manchester by the Sea. He is further shocked to find that he has been appointed guardian to his nephew Patrick, a role he is not happy about. Flashbacks from his former life, throughout the film, explain his present life and alienation.

“A drama of rage and grief that stands on the brink of the inexpressible.” –  Financial Times
