Storyline

Mary, a troubled teenager, lives with her mothers Betty and Doris in a nice little house in a nice little suburb with nice neighbours. It's a nice little world populated only by queers. But Mary feels different, alone, an outcast. She is discovering her true feelings: she thinks she's straight. Her doubts are confirmed when she meets Brad, a newcomer from San Francisco. It's love at first sight. What will happen to our sweet Mary? Will Brad steal her heart away? But what will her mothers say? Written by Anonymous
