In one desperate night, four disparate gay men cruise Philadelphia in pursuit of ever-elusive human connection. Brian, a poet with an already-spent advance and a looming deadline, seeks distraction at dusk-whether that means a hook-up (or two) or confessing his love to his straight best friend.
Drew, a renowned sculptor in love with his boyish muse, is eager to finish his latest creation. His model Jim is an unpredictable aspiring actor prone to dramatic outbursts. Simultaneously aroused and intimidated by Drew's talent and devotion, Jim yearns for a modicum of freedom from the sculptor's attentions.
Rounding out the quartet is Bob, a wealthy, alcoholic talent agent, cruising the Philadelphia backstreets for a "beautiful something." Despite his aimlessness, he usually finds his target.
