Based on the novel by Joyce Maynard, Labor Day is a touching portrayal of human vulnerability and what it means to learn to love. Adele is a depressed single mother. Her 13-year-old son Henry struggles to be the man of his house. While on a back-to-school shopping trip, they encounter Frank Chambers, a troubled man clearly in need of help. After taking Frank into their home, Adele and Henry discover that he is an escaped convict.
