Synopsis

Eric, a handsome ex-hockey player turned sportscaster, is living the perfect gay life at home with his lawyer boyfriend, Sam. However, their closely-closeted paradise is threatened when they receive news that Sam's brother Billy's ex-girlfriend has died, leaving custody of her son Scot to Billy. Ed never wanted kids, and certainly never expected one like this. When 11 year-old Scot arrives and they open his duffle bag, they find a pink musical hairbrush, a pink poodle belt and white sock-ettes with lacy fringe at the top. Scot throws Ed and Sam's life into complete disarray, but they soon find that they can't bear to part with him.
