In 1932, after Captain Joshua Pascal's family loses its fortune, the Great War veteran's sense of duty compels him to help his mother convert his childhood home into a Jewish boarding house. He's lived openly as a homosexual among his friends, but now Joshua must pretend to be a normal, and hiding his nature is a lonely way of life. But in the middle of Chanukah, Joshua meets Will, a street musician with a ready smile, and wonders if he might deserve a chance at love. During the cold December nights they find comfort in each other. But the specter of the workhouse and the possibility of family and personal ruin hang over them, making their every move dangerous. Which would they rather lose: their lives as they know them... or the promise of a future together?
