When a young man in a wheelchair meets a single mom in a hospital emergency room an unlikely romance emerges. In their struggle to navigate a tangled health care system, they encounter a young physician whose wavering conscience could be their saving grace. Pyretown is a contemporary love story that asks: how do we look a stranger in the eyes and learn the art of mercy?
