For Cal Hewitt, the expectations of his family and religion are paramount. For Eric Hamilton, life is an adventure just waiting to be experienced. For most of their lives, these opposing worldviews lead Cal and Eric in opposite directions, through mind-numbing jobs, dead-end relationships, addictions, second chances and blown opportunities. But then, beginning with a near kiss just as they are each leaving their shared hometown for good, a tenuous connection is formed, one that weaves through their lives in the form of brief meetings in new cities and bittersweet homecomings, where life's challenges and family breakdowns keep them from ever truly connecting or losing touch. But there comes a moment when common experience becomes stronger than differences, when death and disappointment pull both men back to their roots for renewal, when a friendship is forged from their fleeting connections - one with a promise so natural, inevitable and welcome as home.
