The Plot ~ a new look at coming out, bullying, and family values!

Donald’s relationship with his conservative son Gene never recovered after Donald came out and split with Gene’s mother twenty-five years ago. Now in his sixties, Donald and his husband Patrick are surprised by a visit from Donald’s rarely seen seventeen-year-old grandson, Joey, who happens to be a sporting a black eye. Joey announces he also is gay and will be heretofore living with “grandpa and grandpa.” Gene and his wife Corrine must now chase down their son to Donald’s house for an impromptu family reunion. Both couples are in dire straits for various reasons. Corrine and Patrick become allies as the two in-laws, and Donald and Gene each have strong feelings about the other’s parenting abilities.
