Raphael doesn't believe in a higher power, or in anything, for that matter. After the death of his son, his life shattered, Raphael regrets that he didn't lie about some perfect paradise, and he pushes away everything that once mattered to him - his lover, his job, his reputation as a top architect.

Then he meets Brian, a homeless, maybe hopeless kid, a street kid. When he disappears, Raphael realizes that he cannot fail another person, and he launches a full-out search.

What he finds both breaks his heart and begins to heal it. The price of saving Brian is high, maybe too high.

But Raphael is no stranger to sacrifice, and he'll risk everything to save Brian and reunite with the man Raphael now loves. The question is - how?

Like the architecture of the opera house Raphael designs, the steps to regaining his life will depend not just on careful planning, but faith, hope, and maybe just the magic of love.
