SYNOPSIS: Eric (Tom Cavanagh) is a former hockey pro who enjoys a quiet closeted life with his partner Sam (Ben Shenkman). But when these two straight-acting gay men are forced to take care of 11-year-old Scot (Noah Bernett) and his mammoth sissydom their hetero-normative world begins to fall apart.
