Maria (Ginette Reno) and Gino (Paul Sorvino), emigrated from Italy to Montreal in the 50s and married after their arrival in 'the new world', a world they still haven't quite got used to. Their world is shattered when their son, Angelo (Luke Kirby), decides to get a place of his own. However, they are relieved when Angelo's childhood buddy, Nino (Peter Miller), decides to move in with their son. After all, Nino is an old family friend and he's a respectable cop. Their relief is short lived, as they find out that Nino and Angelo are much more than mere roommates - they're lovers! Will Angelo and Nino be able to resist the gargantuan pressure coming at them from all sides and find the strength to survive as a couple? Will Nino be able to withstand the seductive charms of the voluptuous Pina? Will Angelo find the courage to fully come out of the closet and confront all of them while he accepts himself?
