Arthur McCarthy is the patriarch of a Boston family whose lifeblood is sports. He is the basketball coach at a local Catholic high school, and he's in need of an assistant coach. Either of his twins sons, Gerard and Sean, would be perfect for the job. But for reasons known only to Arthur, he chooses his gay son Ronny, a guidance counselor, to fill the position. The twins question their father's decision, but as they see the wisdom of choosing Ronny, they learn more about life than they could ever learn on the basketball court.
