47 years later, Malcom recollects & narrates his fondest childhood memories with his best friend Zachary in his therapy sessions. The stories of them when they were kids, to their early twenties trying to find where he went wrong in their relationship causing them to drift apart. Malcom is forced to confront himself internally to connect the dots of him and Zachary’s past and see the different signs of depression and oppression within his best friend.
