Young Ned Fickler's life is one of misadventure. The house he robs belongs to a policeman… a handsome one at that. The car he steals belongs to the boss of the neighborhood's shadiest operations… and carries a nasty surprise in the trunk. His best friend and partner-in-crime, Colly, tends to fly off the handle at the slightest provocation... and now he's got a gun. It isn't easy being young, poor, black, an aspiring criminal, and—Ned finally figures out—gay.
Soon Ned's juggling not just one, but two boyfriends: Jason, the cop whose house he robbed, and Mark, a university student he picked up hitchhiking... and neither knows about the other. Lies pile up on lies and the hits keep coming when the crime boss hires Ned as part of a crew to steal artwork and bullion. It's all a little much for poor Ned, especially when he's trying to spare his nosy mother, who desperately wants to believe her wayward son is still "a good boy."
