    Summary

    George Lysander, a poet, ex-heroin addict, and former Chassidic Jew from Brooklyn and Jonathan Bates, a rich kid whose best-friend-slash-ex-step-cousin doesn’t love him “like that”, join together on an adventure to find where “That” is; That mysterious place you end up when you fall in love with someone like that. It’s never been defined what “like that” even is. George and Bates decide if they’re ever going to find “that” with anyone, they should not confuse sex with love. So they make the decision: Have sex with each other, and find true love and “that” out in the black and white world. Society demands us to be labeled, diagnosed and defined, but Bates and George live in a constant in between state of gay and straight, sobriety and addiction, depression and optimism, adults and just stupid kids, best friends and something much more. In a black and white world they are shades of grey and those blurred lines in between loving someone, and loving someone “like that”. They prefer the mystery of their ambiguous existence than to be just one of anything. But when they find "That" together, George and Bates head down a drug addled path toward the feared and the inevitable: Facing, accepting, and defining who you really are.
