But suspicions soon arise when during a visit to Lily's home in Monterey, California, Charles never talks of Lily visiting him in Vancouver. Whenever she hints he changes the subject. And therein lies the rub; if he's not married, not gay or bi then what is he? Who is he? Ill, perhaps. Or dying, even. Maybe a hoarder. Or just another lying jerk. Gripped by love and aching curiosity, Lily and her friend, Vera, devise a plan that sends Lily on a life-changing adventure. Lily makes a self-discovery as she courageously uncovers Charles's secret.
