Ismail Boxwala made the worst mistake of his life one summer morning twenty years ago: he forgot his baby daughter in the back seat of his car. Now, after his daughter's tragic death, he struggles to continue living. A divorce, years of heavy drinking, and sex with strangers only leave him more alone and isolated. But Ismail's story begins to change after he reluctantly befriends two women: Fatima, a young queer activist kicked out of her parents home, and Celia, his grieving Portuguese-Canadian neighbour who lives just six meters away. While a slow-simmering romance develops between Ismail and Celia, dangers lead Fatima to his doorstep. Each woman makes complicated demands of him, ones he is uncertain that he can meet.
