Away from the microphone, David is soft spoken, shy and unsure of himself. However, as his on-air alias, “Danger Dave” – host of the local radio show “Gay Talk” in Buffalo, New York – he’s poised, witty and every listener’s best friend. His sister, Kate, is a thrice divorced banker with a yen for classical music and cats. Though successful, the siblings suffer from a secret, yet vast sense of inadequacy. Kate decides to adopt an orphan in Brazil and asks David to be a father figure. Meanwhile, David grapples with his self-doubts while gawkily romancing his co-worker. Past and present intertwine  in this bittersweet winter’s tale of a man learning to love and accept himself.
