In the Pacific Northwest of 1928, Julian Powell lives a life of privilege—a huge house, servants, and carefully groomed grounds. His days are filled with the endless monotony of family gatherings, gossip, and brown suits. Overshadowing him is a life-long illness. Julian's life changes forever when he makes the boldest decision of his life. He leaves to take care of an ailing childhood friend, moving to a humble farmhouse that will take him away from all he has ever known. He joins a family of his own choosing, which unexpectedly brings him closer to William Neill, the man that he's been secretly admiring, but William has a prison of his own. As William and Julian struggle to overcome their pasts, will their secrets bring them together or drive them apart?
