When Kyle Ross' mother moves him and his brothers from a swanky Dallas suburb to a rural Tennessee town, he thinks his life is over. Not only does he find it difficult to fit in, Kyle isn't sure he wants to. Grappling with his sexuality while trying to cope with the effects of his mother's mid-life crisis has him confused, exhausted, and looking for an escape. Always a hustler, Kyle distracts himself with a business venture that inevitably leads to serious issues of its own. As he learns to accept that change is a part of the natural cycle of life and that all he has control over is the person he is, Kyle taps into a power he never knew he had.
