A gentle and absorbing study of loneliness and friendship.

Martin Bonner is at a crossroads in life; he has just moved to Reno to work for an organisation helping newly-released prisoners adapt to life outside the prison system. Travis Holloway meanwhile has recently completed a twelve-year prison sentence. Cut adrift in a strange city, they find a common ground that belies their very different backgrounds, and against all the odds an unlikely friendship blossoms.
