It's Christmas Eve at the Blue Jay, a Greenwich Village gay bar, a place where patrons believe they can feel free to be themselves as opposed to the straight charade many portray in their outside lives. To be more accurate, they can portray what they truly want to portray, talk to others in as open an manner as they want about their struggles in being gay, and can strive toward or at least fantasize openly about their dreams. As Sadie Holzer states, she the bar's cook who just returned to work after a medical issue, those at the Blue Jay are like one big family, but a family of one's own choosing. She may only be partially correct as they have all chosen the Blue Jay as their home, but there are some family members who some would probably wish would just go away. One of those is Lita Joyce, who outwardly is just a fag hag, but who is truly just a ball buster in she only wanting to prove to herself she has what it takes to attract the opposite sex. She brought Scott, a pilot, into the bar one evening with Scott in turn immediately falling in love with regular Terry, a graphic artist, the two for who Lita seems to have it out in wanting to destroy their happiness. Another is Jim Paine, who middle aged Marvin Hocker tries unsuccessfully to pass off as his nephew, the two of them who are planning to travel to Rome for the holidays, with everyone knowing Jim is a gay-for-pay hustler and Marvin his latest sugar daddy. As many men hope that tonight will be a special night in achieving their dreams - or at least one dream within many they may have - they have to face the reality that there will be an end to the evening and an outside world to where they will return.
