About the Film:
Away from the microphone, David is soft spoken, shy and unsure of himself. However, as his on-air alias, "Danger Dave" - the 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. David struggles with his self-doubt while gawkily romancing his coworker. Past and present intertwine in this bittersweet winter's tale of a man learning to love and accept himself.
