A young boy who is bullied at school for being gay is under great stress to tell his parents this. He loses all hope and attempts to commit suicide. He briefly crosses over to 'the other side', and when he does he meets a winged creature (Death). He follows this creature and it shows him the future, that his life is going to get better but only if he goes back to Earth. In the end he tells his Mother he's gay but in a way that says, 'I'm still your little boy, nothing has changed.'
