As the day of Colin's brain surgery approaches, Dr. Brown travels with Ephram and Delia to New York to consult with his accomplished mentor, Dr. Donald Douglas (Philip Baker Hall - Magnolia, Boogie Nights). Together, the men devise an innovative method to save Colin--and Dr. Douglas advises Dr. Brown not to perform the extremely risky procedure. When Ephram sees how revered his father is among the students and faculty of his alma mater, he gains a new perspective and makes a major realization. Meanwhile, Colin kidnaps Amy and Bright and takes them on an adventure on his last day before the operation, taking care of last-minute emotional tasks. Dr. Brown emerges from the operating room after the grueling surgery and faces Colin's expectant family and loved ones . . .
