Nickie is a self-destructive loner ever mourning the disappearance of his younger brother. Having abandoned a life of promise in his native UK, he has subsisted by drowning grief in alcohol and violence. On the fifth anniversary of his brother's disappearance - and on the verge of reaching his nadir - he meets Emily. The two form an immediate, inseparable bond: it is a love at first sight deepened by a shared sense of sorrow.
