With little privacy and a prostitute for a roommate, Jared stumbles through the tight quarters of a Hollywood youth hostel. He befriends his young neighbor, Robert (Josh Jacobson), whom Jared quickly discovers is eager to pursue more than merely a platonic friendship. Jared gains employment as a personal caretaker for Mrs. Haines (Rocki Craigg), a wealthy, older blind woman. He suddenly falls into a deceptive relationship with her affluent older son, Matthew (Steve Tyler). When the relationship becomes personally destructive, Jared is faced once again with the difficult decision to abandon his stability and risk his heart.
