"Disillusioned with the social norms of the gay community in West Hollywood, California, Los Angeles Public Defender Rory Dennis is trying to make changes in his life," according to press notes. "But when closeted Congressman Adam Kane is found murdered, Rory is dragged back into the ring with his estranged friend and courtroom adversary, Assistant District Attorney Mary Hamilton, who zeroes in on Rory’s ex-boyfriend, hot-tempered reporter Nick Goff, as the prime suspect. With the revelation of Nick’s plot to out Kane and his recruiting of equally ambitious young journalist Alex Post in the politician’s downfall, Rory is forced to question everything he knew about a world that continues to shift under his feet."

Roy Arias Studios, Stage II is located at 300 W. 43rd Street.
