Synopsis
When hard boiled private eye Donald Strachey finds his latest client dead, an apparent suicide, Albany's favorite gay detective smells a rat and decides to take matters into his own hands. With the help of his straight-laced but adoring husband Tim Callahan and his occasionally too-eager assistant Kenny Kwon, Strachey's investigation leads him on a dark and dangerous trail into the world of "gay conversion therapy"--a twisted mix of psychology and religion designed by Dr. Trevor Cornell to turn homosexuals "straight."
