Jessie Fellows was born an outcast and a man no one allows in their lives. He dreams in color, his fantasies mirroring the insanity he fears might be his only salvation from his burning desires and the ones others call disgusting. Inhuman. Living a life of solitude, music is his only salvation. Taunted by more than just his increasing fears, he's faced with demons he can't control and yet those giving him inspiration every day. Finally deemed a lunatic by his only surviving family member, he's locked away behind a façade of hatred and loathing in a place he may never return from. His entire world is ripped away with no hope of regaining and so he slowly begins to fade into a private hell.

Michael Miller isn't proud of the facility he's working in, but in the 1950's there are few hospitals who cater to the needs of the mentally ill – at least in compassionate methods. The days are filled with the drudgery of lost souls and he's ready to give up his life's work until a lone patient enters through the hallowed doors. He quickly realizes the haunted man isn't crazy, but simply searching endlessly for love. Sadly, homosexuality is still considered a sin against God. Determined to help Jessie regain his independence and his love of music, they embark on a friendship and against all odds they fall in love. As both men are forced to face not only their personal inhibitions but also their realization of the men hiding behind their respective masks, a series of near tragedies drag them both into a series of ugly accusations. As demons continue to surface, a single decision will change the course of their lives forever.
