Beautiful story! Rob and his dad are running from the tragedy of the loss of their mom and wife. Neither of them have processed their grief. Wandering around his new home in a roadside motel Rob makes an amazing discovery: a majestic tiger in a cage! He doesn't believe what he has found is real. A new girl enters his life: Sistine and she is also experiencing a rough time in her life so they are bound by common circumstances that neither of them can control. Against his better judgement Rob takes Sistine to visit the tiger.
