Failure could actually be an option. Journeyman electrician Alex Henning is ready to leave Gideon twisting in the wind after their run-ins both on and off the construction site.

Mitch is an electrician, owning his own company and getting through life very well. At 38 he has life experience but never expected to find love or romance in his life. Who would want to be with a guy like him after all. Then one night his elderly neighbour calls him. There is a man sitting in her garden, out in the pouring rain and she doesn’t know what to do. Mitch goes over there and finds Elijah, very drunk and very sad. Mitch takes him home out of the rain and puts him up for the night. The next day he learns that Elijah told his parents he was gay and they kicked him out of the house. Now he has nothing and no one and just has to find his way in life again. Mitch likes the young man a lot but he is too young, too pretty and too bruised for him. What he feels inside could never be real… Slowly…
