Luce feels trapped inside himself; unable to connect to the people around him. His family doesn’t see who he truly is; they see his female body. But, when Luce visits his grandfather, Dan, their identities become entangled. Present moments remind Dan of past events and he slips in and out of time, seeing Luce as the man with whom he once had a love affair. The social detachment that Luce and Dan share brings a moment of latent connection, allowing Luce to reveal the person he wants to be.
