Frank Lubey is in his thirties and lucky. He avoided the draft in World War II, married Lydia, and set up a nice house for her and their three kids. With an interest in horoscopes, Frank completes one for the Kellers' dead son Larry for the day he went missing. Frank arrives with the results (that Larry must be alive) at a moment of high tension at the Kellers' home. He's a harmless man with no understanding of the world beyond his backyard.
