SynopsisPeter Lindley, the forty-nine year old gay son of an Anglican clergyman who has lost his faith, tells a younger man he has just met of his life-long search for authentic love. Haunted by a story he once heard about the poet Shelley, who demanded that a baby who hadn't learned to talk should tell all it knew about the eternal beyond, Peter also feels there has to be an answer somewhere, even when it remains just out of his reach. Starting at a time when being gay in Canada was a criminal offense, and ending in 1981, Peter's sometimes tragic search takes him from the new world to the old and back again.
