A young black artist, finds himself seduced by Andre, a wealthy ‘daddy’ - that is, patron. What is it Franklin finds alluring about this man twice his age? His Midcentury mansion? His Basquiats? The way he looks in a speedo? His enormous... pool? Though a tad surreal, their erotic link deepens from a naughty fetish to an irresistible bond. But when Franklin's Christian mother decides that her son is in peril, she enters into a deeply moving battle of wills with Andre over the soul of their baby boy.
