Robert, an artist embittered by years of critical neglect, finds in the desk drawer of his recently deceased father a manuscript describing a dialogue formed over many decades between Joseph, a patient at a psychiatric institute in Saskatchewan and Dr. Wealdon to whom Joseph entrusts the story of his life and the experiences he has recorded in his enigmatic "Book of Souls".

Though unsure whether this tale is real or imagined as his father had also been a psychiatrist, Robert is deeply affected by Joseph's surprising story and finds within it the resolve to change his own life and reconcile with his wife Anna and adopted daughter MeiLin.

Weaving together both narratives, The Deserving One is a moving account of the experiences which form our lives - family, love, war, friendship, death - and the emotions to which they are bound.
