In an unusually cold summer, recently divorced 32 year-old Jim falls in love with 17 year-old Charles upon first sight. Obsessed with Charles, Jim longs for the opportunity to interact with him. When Jim discovers that Charles is moving away for college, Jim decides to take matters into his own hands by kidnapping Charles before it is too late. Trapped in Jim’s basement, Charles has no choice but to engage in conversation with his kidnapper. Charles is led through an existential journey that causes him to re-examine his relationships with his controlling girlfriend and aloof older brother, his role in life, and discover how it is that Lovers and Sad People always seem to hold up the World.
