Memory is everything.
After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.
For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him.
Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.
I couldn’t really get attached to many of the characters, but their relationships with each other were convincing enough. Arthur was a good brother figure and Marian and Ava were good roommates.
Do I think he should have taken up boxing again? Yes. I feel like it was in his blood and it was a good way to deal with the anger that he often felt, more so after he lost his memory. Do I think he should have been competitive again? Nope. It would destroy Zach and probably him too after a while. I’m not a big fan of the more dangerous sports. Of course I consider most sports dangerous to an extent. But I knew that he would have to take up boxing again. He just had to.
