Description


Tommy is excited to finally be a senior at Roosevelt High School. There was a time when he thought he'd never graduate, especially after he tried to kill himself to avoid dealing with his sexual orientation.

But when Albert, a new student at Roosevelt High, is beaten so badly he winds up in the emergency room, Tommy can't help but wonder if he was attacked because he's gay. Soon, rumors about Albert are reverberating down the school's hallways, and Tommy fears Albert might seek the same solution he himself did two years before

In spite of being busy with school, his job at the local theater and tutoring a young immigrant boy, Tommy finds other students both gay and straight interested in starting a club to raise awareness and seek equality for gay students. But will it really make a difference? Will they be able to modify the school's anti-discrimination code? And will the group be able to help Albert?
