Story intro

Ray Winter (Kyle MacLachlan) leaves his wife, Carly (Maria Bello), for another man. Ray's popular, athletic son, Franky (Josh Wiggins), refuses to talk to his father despite Ray's pleas. The film begins some time later, as Franky is about to celebrate a birthday. His best friend, fellow swimmer Ballas Kohl (Darren Mann), pressures Franky to sleep with girlfriend Priscilla (Hailey Kittle) just as Ballas and his girlfriend, Jess (Kiandra Madeira), have done. (Ballas boasts of having had sex repeatedly.) After Franky's birthday party, a drunk Ballas attempts a homosexual act with an equally intoxicated Franky. Ballas is terrified that his actions have outed him, and he and his girlfriend begin to spread rumors that it is Franky who initiated the sex. When several members of the high school swim team bully Michael (Carson MacCormac), Franky stands up to his teammates and defends the shy, skinny boy - reinforcing the belief by most kids at the school that Franky is gay. Franky begins to piece his life back together by befriending potentially transgender friend Mouse (Niamh Wilson). He also rekindles his friendship with Ballas's sister, Natasha (Taylor Hickson), whom everyone (including Franky) ostracized some time ago as a "slut" after she was sexually assaulted at a party. Franky finds himself romantically involved with Natasha. Franky realizes that he should put off a serious relationship or sex until he's ready. The insight helps Franky come to terms with his father's homosexuality.
