When he Dane’s advances towards him, he too gets attracted to him. As Seth and Dane indulge into a passionate romance, they are called to the help of a gay student named Truman Reid, who is bullied by others.

But, all the plans of Truman Reid are put on hold when he gets attracted to a new gorgeous boy on the very first day at school. Mike Stewart has dark hair, blue eyes, and is big in size. He is manly, quiet, and doesn’t interact much with other students. In order to get close to Mike, Truman tries to get him included in the crew for the senior class play called Harvey. This seems to be a rather easy task for him as he is the director of the play. Truman wonders if Mike Stewart is even gay and how can he proceed to have a relationship with Mike when his mother is falling for his father.
