When Oliver's (Ewan McGregor) father Hal Fields (Christopher Plummer) loses his wife in his seventies, he announces to his son that he is gay and now "wants to explore the other side." Four years later Hal dies of cancer, leaving 38 year old Oliver to struggle with loneliness and a life informed by the unreliability of love. As he continues to mourn and remember both his parents Oliver meets Anna (Melanie Laurent) - an exciting and captivating French woman - who inspires Oliver to move past the limits of the relationships he has known to a more surprising, more frightening, and finally more intimate love.
