EG lies in a White Room on the brink of death, suspended from actual time and space in a state defined in Tibetan Buddhism as the "bardo." In this frozen moment, past, present, future, and potential become one: the man EG is shares space with the child he was and the man he might have become. But who is EG? A kaleidoscopic range of possibilities presents itself: an emotionally scarred veteran of gay life in the 90s who increasingly seeks refuge in his home in Anchor Bay; a sadistic and psychotic leader of a gay paramilitary force; a Hollywood heartthrob who is aging ungracefully and seeking his lost youth in a series of empty relationships; a lonely, overweight Catholic teen who allows himself to be used as a means of gaining acceptance; an abused and desperate young man crippled by a devastating muscular disease; and in irresistably beautiful boy who uses seduction as a key to the world. Each possibility is equal in importance as EG prepares to leave the bardo and, possibly, pass into a state of perpetual enlightenment.
