There are two men struggling to pass through denial, guilt, anger, bargaining, depression, hopefulness to finally get to the acceptance stage.
The story is a 'ripped from the headlines' kind of tale. It's based on actual events, but the stories and characters are completely fictional. The subject matter is very grim. It's definitely rated mature and if you are sensitive, this won't be the story for you.
During the course of life, we encounter death. Whether it is the passing of a person, a relationship, or even an idea, we must cope with the loss. Sometimes we do so with grace and other times we can be clumsy. Regardless, our struggles with grief can be aided when shared with others.
This is the story of two very different men. One is gay. The other is straight. One is in a position of power; his associate a captive. Together they are navigating the turbulent waters of sorrow. There are signposts along the way, but they don't tell us the story. These markers only give us a general sense of where we are going.
