    • Synopsis
    • Michael and Jim first crossed paths in California in the 70s while wandering around America. They became lovers for a short while and, later, friends, but after a while they lost track of each other. Twenty years later Michael successfully tracked down Jim once more: penniless and now seriously affected by complications caused by HIV, Jim has returned to his family in in Illinois.
      Michael, also sick with HIV, suggests they try to make a living together in New Orleans, Michael’s favorite city in the US, the city where he first found shelter as an teenage runaway pulling tricks in the streets.
      They reach New Orleans right after the devastation of Katrina, and they try to make a living selling hand-made dolls with Cajun themes in the French Market.
      They are both carriers of a glorious past which, while painful, equips them with the courage to keep going despite their serious problems, taking one day at a time, like comets who Glow in the Dark for just a few moments, before their big fall.
