Alex's five-year contract with Tracht is almost up, and neither of them is sure how things will proceed from here. Without the constraints of the contract, Alex is technically free to do whatever he wants. There's nothing forcing him to stay with Tracht, or forcing Tracht to keep him.
They're in a holding pattern, until they're both pulled into a corruption trial that forces them to face a few ugly truths about Tracht's past and what it means for their relationship.
Can their relationship survive when they're no longer legally bound to each other?
