Summary
Set against the troubles of young gay man, Thomas. First his opera diva mother, Elisabeth, comes for a visit. The only problem he has is that she doesn't know he's gay. When he accepts a blind date with someone from an online chat room, he ends up witnessing a murder and possibly discovering the identity of his real father. Eventually he ends up telling his story to a therapist, who is instead replaced by unstable voice-over actress Penelope
