Arloc Simpson is fabulously wealthy but desperately lonely, living a solitary life for many years. Wrestling with the idea of his own mortality after having just read the obituary of a former lover in the paper, Arloc goes for a walk…a very long walk. And meets a stranger, Boyd, who he believes may be the great love of his life. A runaway with no family, Boyd works as an angel at Radio City’s Christmas Spectacular. Somewhat smitten of this angel, and after only one drink, Arloc can’t find it in himself to part with Boyd, and let his last chance for happiness escape. So he kidnaps him. At that moment, Arloc’s mother, Nessa decends upon him. Nessa is a flamboyant, fast talking, heavy drinking, promiscuous woman, who has fled her loveless marriage and, with nowhere else to go, seeks refuge with her son. Will love concur all as more of this trio’s troubled past unfolds? Or will the presence of this angel be too much for the other more fragile and desparate pair?
