Albert's war buddy, Larry Doyle, now dying, has come for a last visit hoping to content himself that he did one good deed: saving Albert's life. Instead he finds a man who has failed at life, with a disabled child, deceived by his wife and his own beliefs. Albert's attempts to deceive Larry only make the deception more evident, leaving him alone with his own self-delusions. Written by the Pulitzer- prize winning playwright Frank D. Gilroy. Who can ultimately save you from yourself?
