This is an interesting look into the life of a gay teen (Rafe) who just wants to be normal. So, it is understandable that he does not want to broadcast his sexual orientation to everyone at the all-boys boarding school he will be attending in Natick MA. Rafe is actually pretty excited for his chance to be more than just the gay kid. His plan seems to be going great- at first. Then when he falls in love with one of his newfound friends, he struggles with showing his true emotions.
