New York-set drama detailing the tumultuous gay relationship between documentary filmmaker Erik (Lindhardt) and the self-destructive, closeted Paul (Booth). After a brief sexual encounter, the relationship between the two men develops into an on-off eight-year affair defined by heady highs, suffocating lows and deeply dysfunctional emotional patterns. In love but out of his depth, Erik struggles to deal with Paul's crack cocaine addiction and negotiate his own boundaries while remaining true to himself.
