Set in and about a sprawling, airy Victorian house on a private lake--eight male friends, all of them gay, leave the city behind for three simple weekends of rest and relaxation. But that's the least of what they experience. Over the next three summer holiday weekends--Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day--these eight friends will fall in love and fall from grace, they will hurt one another and forgive one another. They will form couples and break apart, they will celebrate strength and give in to weakness, they will play jokes on each other and give a shoulder to each other. They will form an assortment of hilarious, bewildering and inspiring permutations on contemporary relationships. They will even don tu-tus, for a very good cause. Sparks will fly and bonds will be sealed. But no one will emerge from these three weekends in the country the same. No one will leave without taking a humbling, surprising reminder of just how funny and heroic love is and how wondrous the human spirit can be.
