Matt is a simple boy from the small town of Eden, North Carolina. His dad is a G.I., and his mom is a homemaker. He's gay and coming of age, but the only person who knows is his BFF Stacey. The weekend has begun; it's a time of rest and fun, all ending on Halloween night, where the local teens come together for a big bonfire. They hang out, make out, and get into trouble.
When Stacey shows up at Matt's, with her cute cousin Josh from Virginia, Matt can't deny their instant attraction that leaves Stacey feeling a bit left out and jealous. Back in Virginia, Josh lives a different life that could put a damper on any potential relationships. Between chores, school, sports, and homework, he barely has time for anything, much less fun. Still, that doesn't stop him from considering a relationship with Matt. He'll just need Stacy's help... if she can overcome her jealousy.
Join Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this heartwarming story of how young love can find a way if fate determines they are supposed to be together.
