"How much does love have to hurt before it is not love?" is the question that plagues Antonio as the past demons of domestic violence resurface at the hands of his partner, Kirk. Antonio hides his pain from his mother, Cynthia, who suffered tremendous amount of abuse at the hands of his father, Miguel. Antonio is jolted out of his denial by one of his patients, Michelle, who is, also, a victim of domestic violence. While Michelle does not consider herself a victim, a critical incident forces Antonio to reevaluate the "magic and tragic" of life with Kirk before it is too late.
