A recovering alcoholic with a marriage, family life, and job that brought him deep satisfaction and joy, Blue hears that distant music when he meets a sixteen-year-old girl named Luna.

As Blue recounts the events of his life, he weaves a story of classic dimensions, a tale of love and suffering, family and friendship, death and redemption.
