Description

After a stint in ex-gay conversion therapy, James (THE SECRET LIFE OF AN AMERICAN TEENAGER’s Michael Grant) returns to the family farm and his emotionally stilted father (THE DUKES OF HAZZARD and DJANGO UNCHAINED’s Tom Wopat) – the man who insisted he go to therapy in the first place. James insists to his father, a widower who values hard work on the farm above all else, that he’s been cured, constantly replaying the sessions with his counselor (IT’S MY PARTY’s Gregory Harrison) in his mind for reassurance. But a chance encounter with Charlie (Josh Green), his former lover, soon finds James conflicted between his loyalty to his father and the realization that his dormant gay sexuality is rising to the surface. During a bucolic summer afternoon, things unexpectedly heat up with Charlie – and what has been hidden for so long can no longer be ignored by either father or son. Both must come to terms with the truth and perhaps, forge a new relationship. A heartfelt gay drama set in the heartland.
