Fearlessly raw and surprisingly tender, The Houseboy delivers a wildly unconventional holiday tale. Aimless and barely in this twenties, disarmingly cute Ricky is content to play boy to a pair of hot thirtysomething lovers. That is until he overhears them whisper about "a new toy boy for Christmas." Crushed and totally alone while his couple is on holiday, Ricky binges on internet hookups, random tricks, and hardcore drugs. Unable to kill the pain, Ricky contemplates the end. But a chance meeting with Blake, a sweetheart of a college kid with a thousand watt smile, makes Ricky wonder if there's something to live for after all.
