Is he gay or just a little too European for a small town in Middle America? That’s the question faced by Oddmund, a 26-year-old Norwegian, who arrives in Lindsborg, Kan., to work as an au pair on the bison ranch of Helen Hazelton (Traci Lords), a recently widowed mother of two sons, Atticus and Beau. Atticus is a typical teenager with a smart remark for every situation, but Beau is the shy, sensitive type. Oddmund brings a little discipline and laughter to their home. He helps Atticus befriend a sexy classmate who he’s fallen for but is afraid to approach, and helps Beau stand up to a bully. Meanwhile Helen seeks advice from her dead husband's ghost confessing her growing attraction to Oddmund and at the same time her concern that he’s getting too close to their sons. In his mission to help Atticus and Beau, Oddmund forms a soccer team with them and a rainbow assortment of townspeople, including a butch female sherriff and a drag queen art teacher.
