For years Scott has felt concerned his father will discover that he is gay. Walter has disliked gay men ever since he was ten-years-old and went through a terrifying experience.

Scott meets and falls in love with a young man named Vallie. Walter finds out about this relationship and attempts to stop it. Scott's depression over his fathers' nasty behavior leads him to attempt suicide.

Scott begins seeing a psychiatrist to deal with the trouble he and his father have shared. Walter also begins seeing a psychiatrist. He feels troubled that his nasty attitude concerning gay men almost caused his son's death. Family conflicts coil in a tangle of misunderstanding and hope. Will Scott and his father resume some sort of family relationship?
