Upon arriving at the opening of his first New York City exhibition, a gifted young artist finds his memories drifting back to his relationship with his first love, and attempts to use the lessons he learned as a young boy to save his relationship with his current lover. As an adolescent struggling to find his place in the world, emerging artist Danny (Tye Olson) fell hopelessly in love with handsome athlete Carter (Kyle Clare). Despite the fact that the relationship simply wasn't meant to be, something positive did come of the situation. Danny learned to harness his heartbreak and turn it into creativity thanks to the encouragement of his free-spirited art teacher, Mrs. Martin, his physically disabled best-friend, Andy, and his mother, Miriam -- a recovering alcoholic. Now, just as Danny begins to find success on the New York art scene, his relationship with current lover Allan seems caught at a crossroads. If Danny can keep his promise never to paint the boy again there is still hope for the troubled couple, but sometimes the only way for Danny to overcome his emotions is to pick up a paintbrush and allow his art to come naturally.
