College freshman and cancer survivor Evan finds himself yearning for the approval and attention of a mentor or father-figure, an older man to help him figure out his life’s meaning and purpose. He tries to enlist his frosty, imperious history professor, Ellis Barlowe, and in the process unravels Barlowe’s secret past as a ‘saint’, decades spent as a devoted monk working in a monastery hospice before losing his faith in both God and men. As the academic year progresses,their relationship flounders in a comical way but then begins to gel through small crises, epiphanies, revelations and drama. But the biggest challenge to their bond is Persephone, Barlowe’s graduate assistant and Evan’s history instructor.She is drawn to both men, and plays them against each other, letting them compete for her sexual favors. Eventually this game leads to a crucial showdown between the men, forcing them to re-evaluate themselves and their relation–and value–to each other.
