Synopsis

Chuck Guy has suddenly lost his sight after 60 years of perfect vision, and a looming retinal surgery is his only hope of recovering it. Having recently buried his mother and now living alone on a violent, drug-infested block in Nashville, Tennessee, he forges an unlikely friendship with his next-door neighbor Eddie Cox, a blue-collar retiree and neighborhood busybody who couldn't be more different. In this cinéma-vérité exploration of blindness, fortitude, and friendship, Chuck reflects on wide-ranging subjects such as queer history, literature, and his own life, while struggling to face a very delicate surgery and its aftermath.
