Although Dante Lawrence seems to be a normal teenager, he struggles with his homosexuality in the religious town he resides in. His twin sister Alexx, however, has provided support for him, despite the malicious actions of various townspeople. When the new student Asher Kent arrives in town, however, his presence drives a wedge between Dante and Alexx when it is discovered that the twin siblings both have a romantic interest in him. The once-close siblings battle for Asher's heart, but who will Asher choose in the end?
