A deep insight into the prejudice faced by the LGBTQI+ community and the internal turmoil of queer youth.

In many ways, Casey Miller is a regular teenager with a passion for writing stories. But Casey has a secret ... he's straight.

Feeling isolated, the aspiring author creates a friend- Riley, a lesbian girl who lives in an opposite world (not unlike our own) where heterosexuality is normality.
Riley operates as a reflection of Casey as he documents twisted versions of his reality through her eyes. But Riley can't always be happy- not when Casey's not ... because that's not fair.
