Sean and Michael are best friends from the minute they meet and become roommates. But after supporting Sean in the wake of his brother's death, Michael finds himself questioning his sexuality and thinking about his roommate in a totally unexpected light. After all, he and Sean are straight - or so he thought. Suddenly Michael's not so sure any more. He turns to their gay housemate, Evan, for advice. Little does he know he's not the only one seeking Evan's help.
Michael and Sean are both thrilled to explore their newly discovered feelings for each other, but not everyone shares their enthusiasm. When the reality of homophobia intrudes on their academic and personal lives and threatens their happiness, the adversity should draw them closer. Instead, it drives a dangerous wedge between them and puts their relationship, their futures, and their health at risk.
