It concerns a young teenager, Caroline, who is housebound with a debilitating illness. Forced to stay home while the world spins ever on around her, she is growing increasingly bored, angry and desperate. Then a stranger calls. His name is Anthony. He is a young black man from her school, a member of the basketball team and a star in the firmament of their high school’s galaxy of well-liked kids. And although she doesn’t know him, has never met him, he has brought Caroline a gift.
