After moving into a quaint Southern boarding house, Annie learns about a former tenant, David Stern, who retired to his room 40 years earlier and mysteriously disappeared. Curious about the fate of this quiet graduate student, Annie begins to delve into his past. She quickly learns that while there is no evidence of foul play, there is ample proof of a cold and unfeeling young man. Annie is on the verge of abandoning her search when David Stern begins appearing in her dreams, pleading with her for help.
Then one night there is a violent break-in at the boarding house and Annie’s life is threatened. David literally emerges from the boarding house walls—an unchanged man of flesh and substance—in order to save her.
Keeping his existence a secret, Annie spends more and more time with David, trying to understand who he is and why he exists in this surreal realm. As their relationship deepens, Annie recognizes the painful childhood and harsh upbringing that helped to transform him into a cold and bitter man literally trapped between the walls. She also recognizes a possible solution.
Working together, the young couple seek an escape for David—a route by which he can literally be liberated from the walls of the boarding house. But their task isn’t easy. Keeping David’s existence a secret grows increasingly hard in a home shared with other boarders.
Suddenly a new challenge arises—a challenge brought on by an unexpected death and greed. Now Annie and David are faced with the threat of separation, and one that may prove all too permanent.
