What happens when love can't happen? When attraction is an addiction?
Harkin was already dead inside and is not looking for a woman who can change his perspective on life. He was happy holding on to his bitterness until he met Emily, a recovering heroin addict, that would teach him to let go of the addiction.
They must survive a sea of desires and decide if they can keep each other from drowning again, relying on hope. Harkin and Emily will explore every sharp cut of recovery and relapse, clinging to one another as shipwrecked sailors cling to debris in search of a shore.
Do they have the strength to feel their hearts beat again? Is their love strong enough?
