Winston Lambert was a renowned dancer and choreographer. Now, at 55, he is ill and spends most of his time at home. Tyler Morrison is 21, an elite dance student with enormous promise and Winston's live-in lover. As Winston travels towards the sunset of his life, he begins to ask the hard questions of himself. Tyler, noticing that Winston has been a bit preoccupied with his past, though unaware of the seriousness of the situation, decides to locate someone special from those salad days and arrange a visit to cheer Winston up and provide a bit of distraction during his supposed recovery period. Enter Benjamin Cain, Winston's first love and college roommate. It is a precious, fun and memory-filled reunion visit, but Benjamin's continued presence in their lives, as well as his own personal agenda, threaten Winston and Tyler's relationship and forces all three men to examine the fine line between the embrace and comfort of memories and the danger of living in the past and relying on illusion to avoid the future.

The fourth character is called The Dancer. He is powerful, graceful, skilled and electric. He performs at various moments throughout the play, but never speaks. He is visible only to the character Winston.
