Synopsis

In the shaded palms of contemporary West Hollywood, a group of gay men try their best to find happiness, security, and above all, a good man. They include: Dennis a promising photographer preparing to celebrate his 28th birthday; Benji, the punk with a penchant for gym bodies; Howie, the graduate student who thinks too much and lives too little; Cole, the charismatic actor who keeps "accidentally" stealing everyone else's guy; Patrick, the cynical quipster with a fragile heart; Taylor, resident drama queen; and Jack, the beloved patriarch whose restaurant is a haven for them all. Into the mix steps Kevin, Cole's latest abandoned conquest--a "newbie" who's not quite out of the closet.
