    While Julian attempts to reconcile the escort he was in the past with the man he is today, Detective Sunday (Rosie O’Donnell) is seeking the truth about the murder that put Julian behind bars so many years ago. The investigation unearths a larger conspiracy at play.

    As teased in the trailer, below, Julian is breaking back into the male escort business, but could it lead to more trouble? Only time will tell for sure.
