Logline

A successful graphic novelist returns to the rural hometown he ran away from fifteen years ago to face his first love, small town attitudes, and worse, his family.

Synopsis

Home to Roost is an LGBT-themed, hometown-boy-makes-good tale. Bertrand ‘Bird’ Marshall is a famous graphic novelist. He left his rural hometown twenty years ago after being caught in a compromising position with his best friend Danny. Bird felt his twin brother Jonah was embarrassed by him, so he ran away.

After Jonah commits suicide, Bird returns home to find his sister-in-law Deann may be a bigger part of the problem than he realized. He quickly realizes the spark between he and Danny has not been extinguished by time or distance. He also finds he has become a hometown hero of sorts.

With Danny by his side, along with the support of his bold-as-brass mother, Mae, Bird realizes he was missed in his absence. He gathers the courage to defend his family against Deann and confront the small-minded hate and bigotry of a few redneck neighbors.

COMPARISONS: 'Big Eden,' 'Sweet Home Alabama' and 'Sordid Lives'.
