A sexually awakening gay teen athlete finds himself in a budding relationship with his mutually attracted relay race teammate.



The movie is light. We follow Siege through his family problems and the discovery of his sexual orientation. The teenager has a hard time accepting his attraction to Mark but they keep getting closer. It is easy to recognize ourselves in this story.
