Synopsis

Jack was already struggling with the usual adolescent demons, when he noticed something unsettling -- his parents' marriage was coming to an end. He could feel the tension that existed between his mom, Anne, and his dad, Paul. When his dad moved out, Jack knew that his life was about to change forever. Paul eventually summons the courage to tell his son about his new relationship. He's fallen in love -- with a man. He wonders why he can't have a normal family like his best friend Max. Max's mom, Elaine, is perfect and while Max's dad, Steve, has a bit of a temper, at least he's still with the family. Jack slowly comes to terms with his new family, but things get worse before they get better. There are nasty rumors, anti-gay graffiti and, of course, the usual social difficulties that come with adolescence. But Jack soon finds out that he's not the only kid in school with a gay dad. He discovers that Maggie, the daughter of one of Paul's gay friends and a beauty that Jack has had a crush on for ages, is in a similar situation. Then, when things go terribly wrong on a camping trip with Max's family, Jack finally understands: there is no such thing as a perfect family and his own, flawed and broken though it may seem, is more caring and supportive and stronger than he knew
