Synopsis

When successful New York artist Henry Hart returns to his small hometown tucked away in the hills of Montana, he has a couple of things to face: his grandfather might die before Henry has the guts to tell him he's gay; and his love for his best friend during high school is still unrequited. At the same time, Pike, the introverted Native-American owner of the town's general store, has something important to tell Henry, unless someone in this tight-knit community tells him first.
