From early on, Chet and his younger brother Todd knew they were gay. Raised by their embittered father after their mother left them, life in their little California town seemed set. Todd, however, burst out of the closet and fled to L.A. while Chet stayed behind to work in his family's hardware store and play his expected role. After their father's death, Todd suddenly returns home, jobless and living out of his truck. His in-your-face open sexuality and confrontational humor jolt both the carefully arranged order of Chet's life and the fragile tolerance of his hometown's unspoken homophobia. Now issues the brothers have ignored for years emerge. The masks of Todd's outrageous persona and Chet's conformity to the acceptable are about to be ripped off. The resulting drama, played under the watchful eyes of a small rural community, is going to change everything. Erotic, humorous, and emotionally gripping, this wonderful film is about finding the courage to live the real script of your life, regardless of what stage you find yourself on. - C.R.
