It has been four years since Thom Sadler last spoke to his sister, Abby. Yet his out-of-the-blue phone call wrenches her away from her staid life as a teacher in Philadelphia and sends her home to Atlanta, where Thom still lives. As Thom and Abby tentatively move toward reconciliation, they also move toward exclusive new lives: Thom, newly diagnosed as HIV-positive, grapples with the loss of his lover, Roy; Abby, her sense of self reawakened, plunges into a passionate love affair. Amid the chaotic swirl of Thom's eclectic circle of friends, the two siblings confront the ephemeral nature of human connection and are ultimately led to a staggering realisation of the healing power of love.
