Can a Sunflower save a man's life? Ask Michael.
Michael is trying to become an artist, which is hard enough. It’s been made harder since his business partner left. It doesn’t help that his deliveries are always a hassle thanks to his stubborn neighbor. After a fight about this, neighbor Ted surprises Michael with a deal that will make his life easier. But there’s a catch: Michael has to wait for Ted to die.
He doesn’t have to wait long.
After Ted's death, Michael spirals into a dark pit of despair, tormented by a relentless sense of guilt. As the threads of his life unravel, the haunting shadow of his involvement in Ted’s death taints everything he holds dear. Each day brings a further disintegration of his once comfortable and productive life. His customers leave him. His girlfriend leaves him. He’s about ready to give up entirely.
When all seems lost, a new alliance unwittingly provides the key to salvation, and Michael discovers a few truths. One of them is that he doesn't have to become someone else in order to be a good man.
