Following the death of his wife, and an ensuing failed suicide attempt, Early Landry (John Carroll Lynch), is forced to move to Los Angeles so he can be cared for by his over-protective sister, Laurette (Maura Tierney). Early is initially a fish out of water, but quickly becomes enamored of this strange, new world. He is especially taken by his next-door neighbor, Freda (Matt Bomer), a beautiful transgender woman who finds Early every bit as exotic as he finds her. Loneliness and a shared need for companionship opens their hearts to a remarkable new relationship, as they both discover they’ve found what’s been missing in their lives.
