In a story both moving and humorous, Clive Owen plays journalist Joe Warr, thrust into single parenthood after his wife tragically dies of cancer. Left with a grieving six year old son and then joined by a son from a previous marriage, Joe throws the rulebook out the window and devises a new philosophy for bringing up boys: Just Say Yes. THE BOYS ARE BACK charts Joe's journey as he discovers that he has to learn about fatherhood and himself.
