"Memory is my enemy. It never fails me, although I often wish it did." Working at a less-than-inspiring office job, Tony, a gay man struggling with grief and mental health issues centered around his body image, is about to turn 35. As this "cubicle daydreamer" takes steps to improve his situation, his life is turned upside down when he is drawn to a younger, flamboyant and free-spirited artist named Antonio.
Will Tony successfully make a meaningful connection with Antonio despite their many differences? And how long can he hide the secret devastating to himself and to their relationship?
Part romance, part drama, part comedy and a raw portrait of disorder, Cloud Cover captures the experience of love and loss--of others and of oneself--amidst past trauma, modern expectations and resulting inner turmoil.
