Two old men sit in a park, playing chess. As the game heats up, we are taken through flashbacks to their earlier years: A 17 year old boy named Terry struggles to keep a relationship with his only friend, Eliot, a fellow classmate who only shows him affection when they are alone. They are both gay, but Eliot is closeted and ironically homophobic, beating up Terry whenever they are seen in public.
