But Dickie is abusive, much like the men who have used Timmy for their own sexual release since he was a child. His attraction turns to Shelly, but who wants nothing to do with him.
Timmy is also seduced by an older Polish woman, an acquaintance of his mother's. Confused by his own desires, Timmy returns to his favorite activity -- cruising the pathways of Tompkins Square Park.
Will Timmy accept his sexuality without fear or shame? Or does he risk losing himself to his own hungry desires?
