The underlying theme of Alex, Peanut Butter, and Me is that sometimes the most insignificant act inflict the gravest wound. Recently divorced, Phil Hayes, marries the woman of his dreams, but a year later he stands at her grave with the intellectually challenged son from her first marriage, 20-year old Alex Patterson. Phil struggles to overcome the maze separating them.
