Laid back Harry is getting nowhere in art school but has become a genius at personal styling. He can make anyone look hot and attractive.
He does a
makeover for roommate Clara, a classics student. She has to appear in
bit movie parts to placate her rich actor parents, who hate that she
prefers Greek paganism to acting.
He hypes the incredible visuals of handsome Erik, who is obsessed in seducing every gay man he meets and comes to believe he is a reincarnation of the demigod Narcissus.
This leads Harry to styling Mumu, Erik’s Muslim partner and owner of a successful computer-imaging firm.
Erik and Mumu
introduce Harry to all the dazzling pool parties in L.A. But the
promiscuity does not satisfy because Harry is in love with Jerry,
a fellow Catholic parishioner. Jerry grows very close but cannot leave his
lover, Tyrone, a rogue computer programmer and suspected murderer.
Jerry wishes to redeem Tyrone through faith.
Their Church is presided over by a gay-friendly, closet liberal priest with a hidden wife in a secret marriage.
At a luncheon at
Mumu’s estate, where Harry’s priest is introduced to Mumu’s equally
liberal imam, Tyrone stealthily invades Mumu’s computer system and steals
thousands of dollars from Mumu’s corporation and threatens to blackmail
the priest if they turn him in.
And Erik falls
under the influence of the Carla’s paganism and decides he is indeed Narcissus and makes plans to die immediately and dramatically rather than grow old and
So the darkest forces of life close in on the pleasure
loving and spiritually sensitive friends but they struggle fiercely and fight back.
