We Live for Half-Moons
Derrick, a Dalmatian in his mid-thirties, is reeling after the death of his boyfriend Nick. Even with Nick's murderer thrown in jail, Derrick wallows in remorse and loneliness, a sorrow he buries in his sexual desires and appetites. Prowling through the night streets, Derrick discovers peace—or something like peace—when he discovers Ely, a local prostitute. Pinned against a money-hungry wolf pimp, the ghost of his former lover, and the conservative agenda, Derrick seeks more than just a place in the world—he seeks companionship, at least to keep the ticks at bay.
