Anthony is ready to return home. Ready to see his family and friends. In order to do so for the first time in three years, Anthony Williams must divulge his life’s journey to his listener. Anthony opens up to Doc about divorce, death, remarriage, baseball, family and first love. These conversations with Doc about his past are intertwined with Anthony’s musings about his new surroundings and new friends - friends that cannot wait for his 3rd year celebration. All of this is punctuated with Anthony’s rumination of the missed opportunity to woo a college friend, a friend whose love he carries with him like a burden. Missing Winter captures the everyday beauty, melancholy, glory, ugliness and wonder of life - and death.
