Finn is in the grip of middle-age and on an enforced break from work: it might be that he’s ‘too emotional’ to teach history now. He is living in an America hurtling headlong into hysteria, after all.
High up in a New York hospice, he sits with his beloved brother Max as he slips from one world into the next.
A call from Illinois summons him back to his troubled old flame Lily, the great love of his life. Together, they’ll embark on a road trip that opens a trapdoor in reality. Just the two of them, side by side again for one last time, coming to terms with all they meant to each other, and how they might go at what is left of life alone.
