Some memories are like snowflakes. No matter how hard one tries to save them, they melt away and leave a stain in an empty pocket and in an empty heart.
When Michael finds that he is the reason his wife, Sarah, is unable to conceive, he asks his brother, Jonathon, to donate sperm for Sarah’s in vitro fertilization procedure. Michael makes Jonathon promise to never reveal the deceit to Sarah. Jonathon adopts Lavar, a young black boy, who had come to the Clinic alone, seeking help with a broken clavicle received from his mother’s abusive boyfriend.
Jonathon confides to his friend, Frenchie, “I am happy to be a single father for my son, Lavar, but my brother has found the rare woman.” Throughout Sarah’s pregnancy, Jonathon struggles an inner battle - that he is the father of the twins she is carrying and that he must honor the promise to his brother.
“Why do I punish myself by watching her?” he asks himself. He tries to stay away from his brother’s wife, but he is drawn closer - like finding a perfect rose and being unable to resist bending to it and inhaling its sweet fragrance.
