The film is set in a small town in Washington State where Flagg Purdy (Alan Arkin), a retired fisherman, has been living for several years. Flagg is a cantankerous and stubborn man who has a long-standing feud with his neighbor, Harold (Austin Pendleton).

Flagg's daughter, Patty (Glenne Headly), is concerned about her father's well-being and decides to move him into her house in Seattle. However, Flagg is reluctant to leave his home and the small town where he has spent most of his life.

As a compromise, Patty suggests that Flagg can stay in Seattle for the winter months and return to his home in the spring. Flagg agrees to the plan, but only if he can take his pet rooster, Henry, with him.

In Seattle, Flagg struggles to adjust to life in the city and clashes with his son-in-law, John (Jeremy Lawrence), who runs a high-end restaurant. However, Flagg begins to form a bond with his granddaughter, Josie (Maggie Dence), who introduces him to her school's chess club.

Meanwhile, back in the small town, Harold has had a stroke, and his wife, Maudie (Lauren Holly), is struggling to take care of him. Patty decides to help out and suggests that Flagg can move back to the small town to assist Maudie with Harold's care.

Despite their rocky relationship, Flagg agrees to move back to the small town, but only if he can take Henry with him. Flagg's return to the small town causes some tension, but it also brings some much-needed changes to the community.

The movie revolves around Flagg's journey of self-discovery, as he finds new purpose in his life, rekindles old friendships, and comes to terms with his past mistakes.
