Oscar Madly, eight years old, got traumatized. Oscar witnessed a gay hate crime at school that left the victim bruised and permanently paralyzed at the same time his mother left their family (with Oscar firmly siding with his father). It's been ten years. Oscar, who has been befriended by his talking hamster Buffy, wants to enroll in a special effects make-up school (using his buddy Gemma as a model), and has seen his vindictive father's anti-social, immature flaws. Sexual feelings begin to develop when Oscar meets coworker Wilder at the hardware shop, but they are accompanied by severe stomach aches (the memory of the hate crime). Oscar's difficulties are brought to a climax at a farewell costume party for Wilder, often in strange circumstances.
The cast includes Connor Jessup as Oscar Madly, Jack Fulton as Young Oscar, Aaron Abrams as Peter Madly, Isabella Rossellini as Buffy (Voice), Joanne Kelly as Brin Madly, Aliocha Schneider as Wilder, Sofia Banzhaf as Gemma, Mary Walsh as Allison, and James Hawksley as Andrew.
