NIGHT FLYING weaves a journey of difficult and life-changing choices with a narrative of love, understanding and hope. In her diary, Mae questions God as she and her husband receive heartbreaking news about her pregnancy, and agonize over the decisions they face. Needing time away to think, she visits her childhood home and reconnects with Will, a deaf friend who taught her to sign when they were young. After her visit, Mae and Will continue an intimate written exchange in which she confides her despair, while Will shares his own struggle to honor his dying father’s wishes, and reconcile his mother’s reluctance to let go.
