Otavie, an American of Nigerian descent, pays a visit to a roadside attraction situated near a busy prairie highway. There he meets Sarah, a young woman faced with a personal dilemma. Sarah’s boyfriend, David, equally responsible for Sarah’s predicament, tries in vain to govern the situation, only to estrange himself further from her in the process. As a place of refuge from his and Sarah’s travails, David whiles his time away at a used bookstore with its lonely proprietor, Nigel, an unassuming man pained by his own wishes for companionship and love.
