Zack Sheldon is almost finished with his medical studies and when he is finished he will dedicate his life to making sure children are taken care off and provided the best medical care there is. Because of his studies he has almost no time for a social life, let alone find a boyfriend for himself. And even if he would go looking, he is far to shy to approach a good looking guy. Why would anyone even consider dating a guy like him? And so he has been using his white coat as a shield and an excuse not to go looking or even trying. But one night he spots the very handsome Sergio Quartulli in the gym and from then on all is lost. When they finally meet Sergio seems to be interested in him too and pretty soon they are together as a couple. However Zack finds it really hard to come out at work and make it known that he is together with Sergio….
