Normal, Ohio | 2000
William "Butch" Gamble, Jr. is a rugged, confident, good-natured average guy. After coming out of the closet to his ex-wife, son and family, Butch left his small mid-western city for more "tolerant" Los Angeles. But after four years away from the people he loves the most, Butch returns to his Ohio hometown and the home of his sister Pamela, a tough, sexy, single mother of two teenaged children, Robbie, a NASCAR-loving 14-year-old, and Kimberly, a book-smart 15-year-old. Determined to re-establish his relationship with his son, Charlie, Butch finds that while Charlie accepts his father's lifestyle, he still has not forgiven him. Adding fuel to the fire is Butch's ex-wife, Elizabeth, who still has feelings for him, and her new husband Danny, who is as button-downed and white-collar as Butch is untucked and working-class.
