British musician, Nicholas Trent, is a perfectly happy single man. He plays guitar, he's toured the globe with world renowned rock bands and shagged his share of groupies along the way. He's settled into middle age with a bit of celebrity, plenty of money, and comfort in his own skin.

Then he meets Caitlin Flynn, a southern woman on her own in New York City. A week together allows Nicholas to brush an unfamiliar emotion--love--but she pushes him away.

With the tour on a short break, he is persuaded to return to the "home" he'd fled as a frightened teenager. While there, he runs head-on into the very nightmares he'd escaped so many years past.

Resuming his life on the road with the band, a groupie's act of violence threatens his very career and brings Caitlin back into his life. But Caitlin carries her own darkness to the show. Can they move past their histories of violence and grief to discover happiness in a world of music, new families, and road life?

Eddie's abusive father a heavy drinker and stereotypical broken war veteran teaches him to fight. Unfortunately he is never taught self control, and his tendency to solve his problems with his fists lands him in trouble time and time again. Eddie finds local success as a singer/songwriter, but just as he and his band is about to gain national recognition a fight and subsequent wounding of another gets Eddie arrested. Clearly a case of self defense, but Eddie's violent past record and damning testimony by corrupt police officers send him to prison. 
From his prison cell he sees the Beatles and The Rolling Stones skyrocket to success and has to deal with the harsh reality, but for the poor choices he had made he would have been part of the exploding music scene. At this low point in his life Eddie's creativity saves him as he takes up painting in prison and on his release he becomes an acclaimed artist and sculptor. 
By the mid 1970s his career takes him to California where he goes on to be a highly successful businessman.  Although Eddie has money and material things in his life he lacks a purpose and the satisfaction that comes with it. He eventually returns to his first love music and it is here he finds a spiritual awareness along with the success he missed in his youth.
