First love, first kill, first grace. Throughout our lives we experience love, loss, and, in rare instances, rebirth. Meet James Mooney, an American Professor who has been on the run for years due to his former occupation with the C.I.A. Meet Angelina Marveau, a fallen French nun struggling between her Catholic beliefs and her 'first' love, an American Professor with a bloody past and a nihilistic view of the world. Meet Illija Kustunica, a young Serbian assassin who gets his first assignment just hours after his newborn child enters the world. Three desperate lives crash, explode, and then converge in an irreversible series of "firsts".
