What is A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood about?

In 1998, Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is an Esquire journalist known for his cynical writing style. He attends his sister Lorraine's wedding, along with his wife, Andrea (Susan Kelechi Watson), and their newborn son, Gavin. During the reception, Lloyd starts a fistfight with his estranged father, Jerry (Chris Cooper), over memories of Lloyd's deceased mother Lila, whom Jerry cheated on and abandoned.
Lloyd's editor assigns him to interview children's television presenter Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) for a 400-word article about heroes, but Lloyd feels the assignment is beneath him. He travels to the WQED studio in Pittsburgh to interview Rogers. Rogers is dismissive of his fame and displays concern for Lloyd's nose injury. Lloyd relates to Rogers the issue of his relationship with his father, whose apology and attempt at reconciliation Lloyd has rebuffed. Rogers tells him he has many ways of dealing with anger, such as striking the keys of his piano.
Determined to expose Rogers' friendly persona as an act, Lloyd watches several episodes of Rogers' show but is unable to discern anything. Lloyd interviews Rogers again when he visits New York. During the interview, Rogers dodges Lloyd's questions and reminisces about raising his two sons. Fred takes out his puppets and asks Lloyd about his childhood rabbit stuffed animal and his father, provoking Lloyd into ending the interview. Lloyd arrives home to find Jerry and his girlfriend Dorothy (Wendy Makkena) there talking with Andrea. Lloyd berates Jerry for cheating on his mother Lila, while she was dying of cancer. He orders him to leave, but Jerry suffers a heart attack and is transported to the hospital. Lloyd refuses to remain overnight at the hospital with the rest of the family and returns to Pittsburgh to see Rogers. Exhausted, Lloyd collapses on the set of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and dreams about his repressed childhood trauma. In his dream, he stumbles into an episode of Rogers' show about hospitals, finding himself wearing rabbit ears and shrunken to the size of Daniel Striped Tiger and King Friday XIII, while Rogers and Andrea tower over him. Lloyd also dreams about Lila, who urges him to release his anger.
