It's 1999; uncertainty and instability are in the air. Four years earlier, Bryan had abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers. Now he's returned to small-town Idaho - with no word of where he's been - and things have changed. His former lover is filled with rage, his new coworker is filled with incessant adoration, and his paper is filled with personal ads. From Samuel D. Hunter, award winning-author and recent recipient of the MacArthur Foundation "Genius" Grant, comes this compassionate, gently-hued drama about lonely lives desperately searching for a renewed faith in humanity.
