Frannie’s entire life has been devoted to her family; her husband, Hector and their three children. Now that Frannie and Hector are empty nesters, they were looking forward to their golden years when a tragic accident at Hectors job quickly diminishes any plans they had for the future. After almost two years, Frannie visits Hector every day in the long term facility and life takes on a new normal. The world keeps turning, the family is expanding and life slowly passes by Hector, or so everyone thinks. As the clock ticks and seconds pass, Hector is angry with his new life. Unable to communicate with the world around him, he slips in and out of darkness only to be brought back to the light by the dedication of his wife. Suffocating in his isolation, Frannie is his life saver, even though he can’t tell her.
