Joe has made him the sole guardian of Patrick, so taking leave of his job as a janitor in Boston, Lee returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea, were he grew up and where his working-class family goes back generations.

There, he confronts the past; his estranged wife, Randi, and the community where he grew up.
