An intimate journey through loss and renewal, a story of life devastated then reawakened by a shocking death. Wilson Joel is a man forced to confront terrible isolation by the suicide of his young wife, Liza. There were no obvious reasons for Liza's death: she and Wilson were happy, successful and very much in love. She left a letter, but Wilson cannot bear to open it. Inconsolable, increasingly adrift, dazed by the petrol he has taken to sniffing, as his life begins to fall apart, Wilson searches desperately for some sort of meaning.
