Rocky Braat never really liked kids. But because of a whimsical choice he made five years ago, he now lives in Tamil Nadu India, caring for a group of HIV positive orphans. They’re his life-- and his visa is up for review. The odds are he’ll be sent away from those he loves most. The only chance he has is to become an Indian citizen, and let go, forever, of any hold his friends and family in America still have on him.
This is a story that takes us from a life destined for middle-American success to an impoverished orphanage and all the while repeats the idea that love is not a part time job.
