"The artistic journey is an ongoing process of discovering who you are, and I'm still searching. You may have been dealt an odd hand, but instead of walking away from the game, keep playing. Magical things can happen." -- CB

Press Release Synopsis:
Jan (Charles Busch), a traveling male nurse from Denmark, takes a new job with Mrs. A (Polly Bergen), a terminally ill Manhattan woman raising her parentless thirteen-year-old grandson, Gil (PJ Verhoest). Spending the summer by the shore with Mrs. A, Gil, and their housekeeper Betty (Dana Ivey), the emotionally reserved Jan finds himself oddly cast as a mentor to Gil in having to prepare the sensitive boy for life with his cousins in Florida after his grandmother’s death. A deep camaraderie grows between these two solitary people, and through the pair’s friendship with two local hairdressers, Lee and Glenda (Carl Andress and Julie Halston), Gil starts his journey to self-discovery. By the end of the summer, Gil has developed a new maturity and independence, while the enigmatic Jan has revealed his own vulnerability.
