    • Synopsis
    • Eric seemed perfectly happy with his band of gay salon friends when he started wondering about being straight. Because of an unloving father, he grew up with insecurity, but finds a sense of family with his best friend, a lesbian named Jeans, and his salon pals. One night, his arrogant ex-boyfriend beats him up and sends him into a coma. His friends wait for weeks and almost give up on him, when Eric suddenly awakes as a straight man. Aloof, confused and with a new desire for women, Eric struggles to keep his job at the salon, refuses to hang out with his gay friends, and starts having sex with women. He gets caught playing around with a female customer and loses his job. Eric falls into depression, and despite loving efforts by Jeans and his friends, he wallows in alcohol and self-pity. A heated argument with Jeans gets him into an accident which put him in a coma once again. After a short wait, he wakes up again and decides to straighten up his life, his issues with his father, his friends, and his beloved friend Jeans, proving to himself and to all that gender was never an issue, and that at the heart of all good things is friendship.
