Fate separated Gerald Hollenkamp from his life's only true love Maxine so many lost years ago. While Maxine moved forward in her life and raised a family of her own, in a home shared with a loving husband, Gerald drifted from one job to the next, with a small key kept in his pocket to always remind him of Maxine, with a key's charm in his pocket protecting him from the dangers his drifting years encountered. And just when Gerald thinks he will no longer have to taste the bitter regret that has plagued his days, Maxine's weakening memory once again separates Gerald from his love. Only, that small key holds a last hope, a power to veil Gerald's face in shimmering magic, a power that gives Gerald a chance to in the end remain next to Maxine's side.
