Logline: A young woman grudgingly agrees to see the terminally ill father she believes abandoned her as a child.
When Lily's adoptive father Roland tells her that her biological father Tim is dying and wishes to see Lily, she agrees to the request but harbors deep resentment because she believes that he abandoned her when she was a baby. At the hospice, Lily remains aloof and angry and rebuffs Tim when he asks her to spend the day with him, until he explains that although his alcohol and drug dependence kept him from seeing Lily directly, with Roland's help Tim faithfully kept up with his daughter as she matured by watching her from a distance once a year on her birthday. Lily now understands that the stranger she had seen was Tim and that his love for her had never ceased. She embraces him and lovingly prepares to spend the day with him.
