On a dim winter afternoon, a young Irish immigrant opens the gas taps in his Brooklyn tenement, determined to prove ― to the subway bosses who fired him, to his badgering, pregnant wife ― “that the hours of his life belong to himself alone.” His suicide, though never spoken of, reverberates through many lives ― testing the limits and the demands of love and sacrifice.
