This is the story of Al, a nineteen-year-old who comes to recognize the special bond that exists between him and his mother. Over the years Al has repeatedly been the cause of grief to her. Al is caught stealing from the drug store in which he has a part-time job and it is only his mother's heroic performance on his behalf that prevents him from being charged. This incident provides the impetus for Al to see himself and his mother clearly for the first time. Based on a short story by Morley Callaghan.
