After 22 years of living in a cell Manual Jordan (Billy Bob Thornton) feels lost when he is set free. Wandering the streets like a ghost, his feet take him back to the neighborhood where he committed his crime; killing young Abner (Luke Robertson) the convenience store clerk as he was pulling off an armed robbery. Pastor Evans (Morgan Freeman) gives him a job at his community center, which is located facing a night-club that is extremely popular with the youth. Pastor Miles Evans allows the kids to park their cars infront of the center if they will come in and listen to 10 minutes of his sermon.

Sophia (Kirsten Dunst) is one of those troubled youths who pass out at the club every night due to excessive drinking and drug-use. Without really intending to Jordan manages to shine a light on her hedonistic lifestyle and the question of whether it's time to pull her life together. Meanwhile, with a newspaper clipping of Abner's photo hanging on his wall, and the sole subject of his attention for hours at a time, over the past 22 years, Jordan manages to locate Abner's sister Adele (Holly Hunter) as he searches for ways to right the wrong he has done...
