Borrowed tells the story of David, a reclusive artist living in the Florida Keys. His private and tortured life is changed forever when Justin visits him. They get more out of their time together than either could have imagined.

David is a middle aged painter and former Navy officer living in a secluded but beautiful shoreline house in the Florida Keys. He breaks his willful isolation to paint a portrait of Justin, an edgy young man. The date takes an unexpected turn, and David must do everything in his power to keep control of the situation while discovering Justin's true intentions.
