Charlie is grieving the loss of his beautiful mother. 

His relationship with his father is put to the test as he continues to live through his ongoing secret,  one he doesn't want to come out. 

His promiscuous best friend Tori also has a secret she wants to share. A desire. One that needs fulfilling.

If My Father Only Knew explores identity, sex and beauty in today's society as well as the struggle of young people wishing to express their true self.
