But when Joe is killed in a car accident just before Jason graduates from college, his idyllic world suddenly crumbles around him.

Even as he battles a seemingly endless internal struggle between the strict teachings from his Catholic faith and his overwhelming desire to live his life as a gay man, Jason continues to press on, realizing that his happiness depends on his determination to find the answers.
