As two high school sweethearts and lovers are reunited after an eight-year absence, two tragedies are occurring. Pamela, at the age of twenty-six, is dying of cancer. Dwight, also twenty-six years old, is dying in a subtler way. Dwight has allowed financial success and prestige to erase his life’s passion. Fate brings these two long-lost partners together on a quest for transcendence.
