A boy, in his 16th year, slowly walks on the boardwalk around the river in Pomeroy, Ohio. "In my life there's been heartache and pain...", Gregory sings. A few of his friends are around him and listen to him singing. The sky is royal blue and the sun is about to set. Pomeroy, as many other rural areas in Ohio, is a hopeless place for any teenager to be growing up in, due to the limited opportunities of finding a job and having a future different than the cycle of drug abuse. Gregory and his friends are some of the few children in this town who are not trapped in this cycle. However, they are homosexuals and carry their own cross in a rural city such as Pomeroy.
