The Premise

1985, rural Illinois.

When a same-sex family’s teenage son invites a school friend to stay overnight, their elaborate plans to appear “in the closet” backfire, leaving their reluctant son to hold their secret together.

Spare Rooms takes the classic coming-of-age story to an almost forgotten world: the height of the Reagan-era, experienced by a family on the fringe. Their risks and their story echo even louder today.
