We meet George Falconer, a British professor who is looking for the meaning of life after Jim, his partner through a lifetime, died. George lives in the past, his faith in the future is gone like morning dew. We follow George through a day in his life, a day spent with various people and where special events follow, which leads him in the direction of a choice. He must decide. Can he find new meaning in life after Jim's death? George is challenged by his close friend Charley (Julianne Moore), a 48-year-old beauty who struggles with her own hopes for the future.

A Single Man is a movie about interrupted love, about what place isolation have in the human world, but most importantly, a film about the importance of seemingly small moments in life.
