Magnus is a quiet cynic. He lives a simple life in an ordinary town. He has a gift, a secret, and a sin--all of which make him a recluse. Samuel is a brash idealist. He is the manager of the coffeehouse that Magnus frequents. Samuel thrives on order and duty. However, something is missing in his life. Three women will open the souls of Magnus and Samuel, and these two men will experience new emotions. Only through a night of song and poetry will Magnus and Samuel find what they have really been searching for. Feelings will emerge, friendships will be made, and secrets will unfold about who Magnus and Samuel truly are . . . where they come from . . . the events that forged the twentieth century...and the trials that make us human.
