Garrett spent his life preparing for "one day." One day he'd meet the man of his dreams. One day he'd have a family. One day he'd travel to all the places he's dreamed of seeing. Then came the one day he hadn't prepared for. The day he was told his "one days" were about to run out. Will that be enough to make Garrett stop dreaming and finally start living?

Last Romance is a moving look at 48 year old Garrett Gilmore who is grappling with the reality of falling in love with 29 year old actor Justin Dixon, who has agreed to be his companion through the final months of his life. Is the feeling mutual or is the younger man just acting the part out of kindness? Enter David Wong, a muscular, take-charge cruise director who makes no bones about his carnal interest in Garrett.

A plethora of colorful characters, challenging situations, and existential realities round out this passionate, raw, and at times sexually charged, tale of humanity, and the lesson that it is never too late to find chosen family and true love.
