When the secretly gay lead singer of the up-and-coming band “65 Home” is brutally murdered in a Chicago back alley, his friends and lovers travel back to Nashville with his ashes to honor him and examine why he was killed.
We follow the friends and lovers of ‘Handsome Jake’ (Grant Stokes) as they try to come to terms with the singer’s untimely death. As the band travels to Nashville to honor his passing, we discover that there are many Jake’s – the brother, the lover, the poet, the liar and the cruel manipulator.
Everyone knows a different side of this man and the conflicted and seemingly contradictory aspects of his life. Torn between his personal and professional relationship with his co-writer Mel (Erinn Strain) and their unborn child, committed to his affair with his secret lover John (Nathanael Card), determined to make it big at all costs – Jake is destined for greatness and taken from us all too soon. But by whom? And why?
As the band members cross the Midwest with Jake’s ashes on board their Winnebago, they must now struggle to regroup, understand what happened, and find a way to move on. But can they do it without Jake?
