Christian Grayson is a professor of Sociology who comes from a close-knit, southern family steeped in values and tradition. He left Tennessee, using education as his excuse for escape, when he truthfully only wanted the freedom to be who he truly was. But at age forty, he’s still in the closet and still adheres to the morals his father, a Southern Baptist Pastor, raised him with. This includes saving himself for Mr. Right.CJ Hata has been under Christian's wing since his freshman year. A genius, pure and simple, he's a senior now, and no longer needs to report to Professor G, but he still seeks his teacher out occasionally for a friendly chat.When Christian accidentally outs himself to CJ while pouring his heart out about his dying father, CJ feels totally out of his element. He convinces himself to put forth his best effort because the man he’s been crushing on for four years needs a friend. In the meantime, everyone around CJ is stumbling out of the closet, but the one person he really wants to come out has barricaded himself in with the bible and his family's expectations.
