Greg Whittmer has done everything his family expected of him. He was groomed to be a successful and wealthy lawyer starting from a young age, and to marry a woman from a wealthy family to follow in his family’s footsteps. After years of being told what to do and complying, Greg has reached a turning point. Greg is a gay man being forced to live the life of a straight man. He has tried to ignore that part of himself all of his life in fear of being disowned and discarded by his family. However, after meeting Ben Stevens, a quirky and confident English teacher, Greg decides to rediscover himself. But there are always consequences for your actions.
