George Martin and his partner Mike live a comfortable life in Jacksonville with their Irish Setter, but somethings missing. Maybe George, a captain in the sheriffs office, has just been working too hard again. Theres been a rash of break-ins in the area, and the homes targeted all seem to belong to older gay men. Then when the time finally comes for George and Mike to take their vacation, they pack up and head to their mountain cabin for two weeks-only to find a small boy living in their generator shed. Robbie, who bonds with George right away, had witnessed an unspeakable tragedy, but that is just the beginning of the trouble. Alone in the world apart from a very ill maternal grandmother, Robbie stands the very real risk of becoming a ward of the state if George and Mike cant convince a bigoted judge to change his mind. Meanwhile, George still has a job to do: solve the mystery of the break-ins-and a murder-and track down whos responsible.
