A story that centers on an English professor who, after the sudden death of his partner tries to go about his typical day in Los Angeles.
Set in Los Angeles in 1962, at the height of the Cuban missile crisis, “A Single Man” is the story of George Falconer, a 52 year old British college professor who is struggling to find meaning to his life after the death of his long time partner, Jim.
George dwells on the past and cannot see his future as we follow him through a single day, where a series of events and encounters, ultimately leads him to decide if there is a meaning to life after Jim. George is consoled by his closest friend Charley, a 48 year old beauty who is wrestling with her own questions about the future.
A young student of George’s, Kenny, who is coming to terms with his true nature, stalks George as he feels in him a kindred spirit.
