Eighteen-year-old Joe has taken a serious bump to the head, and his beloved girlfriend, Angie, has landed on the wrong side of the law as a result of an untenable situation.
How is a young couple supposed to start a life together when one of them is behind bars and the other is too immature to cope?
Enter Mr. Laurence, a mysterious veteran and charming philanthropist who brings magic and healing wherever he goes.
Beloved in the Long Island enclave where he continues his in-laws’ mission to save endangered children, Mr. Laurence and his scintillating wife, Isabelle, take Joe under their wing and help the young man chart a new direction toward success.
The ripple effects of Mr. Laurence’s generosity extend to everyone in Joe’s circle, and offers Angie a path to recovery. With the support of her “adopted family,” Angie becomes a survivor. She learns to cope with her demons and uses that power, not only to survive, but to thrive.
Inspired by Emily Brontë’s classic novel, “Wuthering Heights,” and the subsequent movie starring Sir Laurence Oliver, “Mr. Laurence, I Presume” tells a story of triumph over adversity, acceptance, the power of forgiveness and a love that not even death can conquer.
