Bridge mccoy is running from his past and looking for a place that will not change. He is broken hearted after a divorce and swears he will never fall in love again - to top it off when he walks he takes two steps forward and then one backward. By chance he discovers lost city - a town in decay after the mine has closed. Here he rents a store selling western art, decides to become a writer because it beats working in a grocery store, and promises the old lampposts and decaying buildings he will do everything in his power to make sure the town does not change. As all things go he gets lucky and sells a few novels and falls in love even though he wants to fall in love as much as he wants cancer. Fighting his demons when he tries to tell the lady he loves he loves her all he can stammer is "i, i, i, lo, lo, lo," and then he starts choking like a meatball is stuck in his throat. A cast of characters that could be from mars - artists - mis-fits - 200 dogs - lampposts that have to move to a commune - a love story grounded in friendship that will make you laugh and shed a few tears..
