Jonathan Birch fled for his life from the sex-and-drugs party scene that left his lover dead and Jonathan framed for murder. Hunted by powerful, dangerous men who want more from him than he's willing to give, Jonathan lives a solitary existence in a low-rent motel, always afraid his past will catch up with him.
Newly-released ex-con Peter Grant longs for the life he no longer believes he deserves. Convinced that everyone who looks at him can see his guilt, Peter hides away behind the safety of his locked motel room door and observes his small corner the world -- and the handsome young man who lives upstairs.
Their quiet lives come crashing down one snowy night when the worst of the men from Jonathan's past finds him. If they work together, Jonathan and Peter might stand a slim chance of escaping from men who buy and sell others like cattle, but first they have to do the hardest thing either of them has ever done: step out of the shadows and fight back.
