In New York City, 1991, Alyssa "Ally" Craig and her mother Helen wait on the subway. They are attacked by two young men. The two men shoot and kill Ally's mother after they get on the train.
A man named Tyler Hawkins also has classes at the university. He works at the university bookstore. He has a difficult relationship with his businessman father Charles. That's because his older brother, Michael, had killed himself years earlier.
Charles doesn't pay attention to his youngest child, Caroline. Tyler is protective of her.
One night with a roommate named Aidan, Tyler gets into someone else's fight. He is arrested by Neil. Aidan calls Charles to bail out Tyler. But Tyler doesn't stay to have a talk with his father.
Caroline, an artist, is at an art show. Tyler asks his father to go to the show. When he doesn't come, Tyler meets him in a boardroom filled with people. This makes his father very frustrated.
