Patrick is a warm, open, twenty-six-year-old virgin schizophrenic. Pills and his mother’s protection mean he is no threat to himself or anyone else. Until he falls in love. The object of his desire is Karen, a suicidal flight attendant, who has no idea the intimacy she shares with Patrick might reintroduce her to living. Patrick’s obsessive mother Maura doesn’t realise her own misguided love may be more dangerous than hate. To pull Karen and Patrick apart, she enlists the help of a dysfunctional detective called Freeman, who will use his position to help her — for a price.
