Big Burr, Kansas, is the kind of place where everyone seems to know everyone, and everyone shares the same values --- or keeps their opinions to themselves. But when a national nonprofit labels Big Burr "the most homophobic town in the US" and sends in a task force of queer volunteers as an experiment --- they'll live and work in the community for two years in an attempt to broaden hearts and minds --- no one is truly prepared for what will ensue. As tensions roil the town, cratering relationships and forcing closely guarded secrets into the light, everyone must consider what it really means to belong.
