A conflicted bible college student faces the wrath of his homophobic classmates when his true sexuality is revealed in filmmaker Jeff London's sophomore drama. Upon returning to school following summer break, Paul's internal conflict rages as he struggles to find common ground between his spirituality and sexuality. When Paul makes the acquaintance of new student Alex, their quickly deepening friendship begins to draw the suspicions of their classmates. Increasingly targeted for harassment by the intolerant student body and threatened with expulsion by the school board, Paul and Alex find that the same people who preach peace and forgiveness seem unable to look beyond their sexuality to accept them on a spiritual level.
