Palmer David Gest, a black gay man from Detroit, travels to Indonesia to pay homage to his late male partner by distributing his ashes on several islands across the great expanse of the Indonesian archipelago. While fulfilling this self-appointed task, Palmer simultaneously pursues a quest-searching for, and purchasing exquisite examples of Indonesian textiles from art dealers and weavers for his collection. However, his journey takes several unexpected and consequential turns when he meets three people-a white woman and two men, one black, the other white-who have the potential to change the course of his life. Thus, Palmer's journey through a specific space at a particular time becomes an existential challenge to who he thinks he is, and what he believes he wants from, and in, his life.
