Norman, a mild-mannered accountant is upstaged for attention by his step-children when their biological dad, his wife’s ex-husband, a trendy, hip and now gay actor, breezes into their lives after a long absence. The foundation of the family threatens to crack when their gay teenage son decides to follow his dad back to New York. His liberal, new age mother reluctantly agrees, even though the idea of her son moving across the continent is breaking her heart.
Amidst the setting of two multicultural families, the characters navigate
through different layers of universal love for their life partners,
children and parents, each on their own, finally to discover their lives
are not so far apart.
