Tom and May find their plans and lives ripped apart when Tom loses his job and, in quick succession, his love for May, his belief in his identity and even the ability to trust his own thoughts. He abandons May just days before their baby is due to sleep in parks and toilets, seek wisdom from a madman, solace from a sad, detached woman and engage in sex for money with a cross-dressing male porn projectionist. He becomes traumatised by his own presence, paralysed by fear right to the play's desperate, closing moments.
