NEW YORK CITY, 1955.
In the dimmed lights of their apartment, Dovie and Gillian love each other in secret. Mixing drinks, dancing to slow jazz, they guard their lives closely, knowing they’ll never truly be safe.
And yet, outside, someone suspects the truth.
Gillian fears the worst, and grips on to Dovie more tightly. But Dovie, seeing the good in people, lets the door open . . .
Is this their chance to finally be free?
Or are they in even more danger than before?
