Description: Set in the suburban middle-class world outside New York City, David's life is seemingly normal, but behind manicured doors lays a dilemma that will tear the family apart. When Jack, David's estranged father, leaves his alcoholic wife Katie, of seventeen years, David is forced to become the parent of his siblings. With a doting girlfriend to contend with and an alcoholic mother to care for, David is overwhelmed. He is thrust into premature adulthood, and turns, inevitably, to the only security he knows. Kenny, a thirty-something has-been actor turned theatre coach, quickly becomes obsessed with David. Struggling with his volatile emotions, Kenny weakens and crosses this taboo boundary. David, vulnerable and confused about his own coming of age, succumbs to Kenny's attractive power and influence, leading him to a life of drinking and drugs.
