Aiden, a young college student from Portland, Oregon, meets a mysterious woman, a powerful sorceress. From that moment, Aiden, with the help of his magical mentors, starts down a path of magical discovery regarding his own nature and the true nature of the world. Paul, a gay man living in Houston, Texas, encounters this same woman. She becomes enamored of Paul and gives up her own body and soul so that her magical abilities can live on through him. Paul, armed with righteous indignation about the mistreatment of gay men, sets out to use his new powers to place gay men in a position as the ruling class of the world. Ultimately, Paul and Aiden are forced to confront each other. And the fate of society rests upon the results of that confrontation.
