Kitt has spent his days globetrotting and on a quest to capture the perfect image. On the road, this world-renowned photographer, could never escape a haunting desire for his first muse. When on location in New York City, he seeks her out and, as if the world was going to end tomorrow, knocks on her door and walks back into her life. The years that have tumbled by have changed everything, and nothing at all. If given the opportunity, who would you spend your End of Days with?
