A homosexual high-school senior coming of age in Bangor, ME attempts to make peace with his sexuality in director Todd Verow's micro-budgeted independent drama. Joe (Brad Hallowell) is a high-school senior who for years has pined for the love of best friend Andrew (Gregory J. Lucas). Unable to adequately express himself to his mother and fearful of her abusive boyfriend, Joe moves into the home of an aging artist to work as part-time caretaker and artist's model. When Joe's female friends figure out that he is more interested in Andrew than he is in the fairer sex, they convince the lovelorn teen to follow his heart. As Joe begins to strike out on his own and make a name for himself in the local gay scene, he is soon confronted with a painful memory from the past that threatens to derail his newfound happiness.
