Synopsis: Seth and his recently-divorced mother, Jeanne, are starting out on their own, and are both a little unsure of their place in the world. While the timid Seth's main worries include fitting into a new neighborhood, Jeanne feels her entire purpose in life as a caretaker to her husband has been snatched away. Seth soon befriends a withered West Texas cowboy, his Osage companion and an elderly grocery store owner who introduce him to a world of the past through their own life experiences. Jeanne's problems, however, can't be solved so simply. Her first "real" job outside the home not only tests her ability to rely on herself, but places her on the bad side of a mentally unstable, potentially dangerous coworker. Bouncing from the present-day plight of Seth and Jeannie to glimpses of early Twentieth Century America that exists primarily through the memories of our elders, "The Artful Codger" pays tribute to the perseverance of the human spirit that spans all generations.
