US PREMIERE20-something Belle has long been at odds with her conservative mother who took it hard when she came out as a lesbian teenager. After returning home to Nova Scotia for her father's funeral and wanting to avoid upsetting her mother again in her time of mourning, she becomes desperate to hide the fact she’s been dating a man for 2 years - until Rob, the sweet and supportive man she's been dating, decides to show up uninvited.
