When Brett’s beloved aunt dies, he unexpectedly inherits the historic family home in a quiet little tourist town. Unsatisfied with big-city living in Toronto, Brett and his partner Drew decide to make the move and open a B & B. They quickly discover that the “simple“ life isn’t so simple. This comedy about “being out” in a small-town is a tour-de-force for two actors playing dozens of hilarious characters.
