Nine Lives is a romantic comedy, psycho-thriller, an investigation of love, sex and mores. A wonderful young woman; urbane, ungodly bright and exceptionally beautiful is encumbered with nine personalities; a born-again belle, a punk rock slut, a Buddhist artiste, a toddler, a professional dominatrix, an old man, a gay adolescent boy and a popular model. May falls in love with Tom. When he realizes what is going on it is too late, he is already committed. Commitment is what Nine Lives is about - its price and the spiritual fruit it bears in those willing to pay that price. Tom's best friend, a man whose taste for irony and bourbon must yield to sobriety and sincerity, narrates the story. A psychiatrist balancing a hellish past against his ambitions, becomes obsessed with her and puts his prodigious energies into getting her committed and under his very personal care. Nine Lives features problematic parents, young artists and their work, alcoholism/addiction and recovery and lots of laughter.
