Raj Rabban, a medical doctor, thought he knew all about love and death. Then he meets fiery, red-haired Molly on a Manhattan subway, and what begins as infatuation grows deeper than anything he had ever imagined possible. Molly is the flame that ignites his soul, and for a brief time they inhabit a private paradise reserved for lovers. She begins to teach him one of life's deepest lessons -- that intimacy is the way to freedom -- when fate takes a hand.
Through tragic circumstances, Raj's joy is destroyed -- and almost his sanity. He has nowhere to turn, and therefore he must go beyond. From Molly, Raj learns to survive death and loss, and in so doing he unfolds a great secret -- he cannot save his soul, but his soul may be able to save him.
