Jonathan, a lonely middle-aged man, travels to San Francisco to find a young male companion. He quickly connects with a prostitute who he hires to accompany him on a road trip the Grand Canyon. On the road, the prostitute comes to realize that he’s playing a vital role in the recreation of Jonathan’s lovelorn past.
As the young man digs for clues, Jonathan insists that he stick to the role he was hired to for. Slowly, the prostitute begins to piece together the identity of the person he’s playing. Eager to leave his own past behind and feeling a strange connection with his odd client, he sheds his own identity and plays the part. As the two get closer to the destination, their affection grows and an authentic relationship tries to break through.
