Ray Winter leaves his wife, Carly, for another man. Ray's popular, athletic son, Franky, refuses to talk to his father despite Ray's pleas. The film begins some time later, as Franky is about to celebrate his birthday. His best friend, fellow swimmer Ballas Kohl, pressures Franky to sleep with girlfriend Priscilla just as Ballas and his girlfriend, Jess, 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 a member of the high school swim team bullies out student Michael, Franky stands up to his teammate and defends him, reinforcing the belief by most kids at the school that Franky is gay. Franky slowly begins to piece his life back together by befriending potentially transgender friend Mouse. He also rekindles his relationship with Ballas' sister, Natasha, whom everyone (including Franky) ostracized some time ago as a "slut" after she was sexually assaulted at a party. He reconnects with his father, and admits that he is uncertain, as he did not feel uncomfortable during the incident with Ballas. His father points out that he may not know his full truth yet, but he need not rush to immediately define himself. Through this guidance and the support of his family and friends, Franky finds himself confident and resilient, making an effort to reconnect with Ballas.
