Gavin is on the ledge. Hollis, who just learned that he is not the biological father of his children, has the task of talking Gavin down. Gavin reveals his deep-rooted conflict with his fundamentalist Christian neighbor Joe, whose theological opposition to Gavin was intensified by Gavin's gay roommate and later by Joe's wife's infidelity. The negotiations take a dramatic turn when Hollis learns that Gavin has a deadline, and his life is not the only one hanging in the balance.
