Phyllis Haig, a boozy, homophobic matron, hires Albany's only gay P.I., Donald Strachey, to investigate the death of her gay son Paul. Ruled suicide, she believes Paul's lover committed the crime. The lover in turn believes Paul's therapist killed Paul. At once Strachey has three clients. Then he's fired by all three. Now, he must solve a murder that now everyone wants him to leave alone.
