Starved

I have no connections. I can’t connect. To anything. It’s like I’m.  There’s no. I’m numb. It’s all fucking numb. Daniel Chambers isn’t alone. He has an intelligent wife; a loving mother and a doting son. Daniel isn’t alone.  He’s lonely. When a surprise visitor comes to stay, everyone is baffled by this thirty year old Catholic nun.  As a successful urban family they have no common ground with her or her beliefs.  But as Daniel gets to know her, she seems to be the only person he can connect to. This young woman can somehow touch his inner ache and he opens up to her in a way he refuses to with everyone else, including his wife.
