Movie Info

When an elderly lesbian couple refuses to sell their home to a powerful developer their house is covered in homophobic vandalism, but is this apparent hate crime motivated by genuine distain for gay culture or simple corporate greed? All the homeowners in the neighborhood have agreed to sell except for a committed lesbian couple with no interest in money nor intentions of moving. A local investigator suspects that the attack is simply a way of convincing the couple to bend to big business, and as he delves further into the case he comes to terms with his feelings for an old boyfriend. Inspired by the strength of the lesbian couple he is working for, the investigator finally learns how to love again. Chad Allen, Margot Kidder, and Gabrielle Rose star.

Private eye Donald Strachey is every bit as sarcastic, snappy and smart as ever.

watched this film this weekend. good enough for a gay-themed movie, which is often times an excuse for mediocre film making.

I love all the Don Strachey movies. Great to be able to watch a thriller from a somewhat gay point of view....and the eye candy doesn't hurt either :-)

Chad Allen is back as the gay detective. Good story. Good acting. It's a detective story; ,thefact that there are gay characters is not the point. And that IS the point! Love the series.
