Writer and storyteller Bailey White presents a tale about loss and love. In an annual Thanksgiving tradition, White tells a 22-minute story of a small-town boy who has recently lost his mother. The story takes place at a gas station where the boy loiters his days away, observing people cleaning their cars. The boy, Ned, takes notes on one customer's habits and soon finds out he has an important connection with this patron.
