SYNOPSIS: Torn between caring for his wife and following his dreams, a man is offered advice from his next door neighbor, in the form of a housewarming gift.
Paul and Kate are a young, recently married couple that has just moved into a new home, but their happiness is overshadowed by an illness that has Kate bedridden. While taking care of her, Paul learns from his friend Keith their band's demo was picked up, leading to more recording and touring to follow their newfound fame.
While Paul's unsure of how to react due to Kate's condition, their new neighbor Arielle shows up to drop off a housewarming gift for the couple- an intricately crafted candle. Does a seemingly innocent gift from a stranger contain an answer to Paul and Kate's problem, or will it cause them more harm than good?
