Adapted from the novel by Michael Downing, BREAKFAST WITH SCOT is a touching and very contemporary comedy that tells the story of an "alternative" family finding its feet.
Eric (Tom Cavanagh) lives for all things hockey. At 36, he's managed to turn his stint playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs into a full-time gig commentating for sports TV. He's living the dream! But when Eric's boyfriend Sam (Ben Shenkman) announces that they're to become temporary guardians of a young boy, Eric's comfortable world shatters. Enter Scot (Noah Bernett) -- a recently orphaned, sweet, vulnerable, yet oddly resilient kid, who also happens to be a swishy 11 year-old sissy-of-a-boy -- and Eric's mirror opposite. Freaked out by Scot's "joie de vivre", Eric and Sam gently nudge Scot away from scented hand cream, excessive twirling, and kissing the school bully, towards a more "acceptable" pastime - hockey. But after Scot's disastrous first game, Eric begins to rethink the compromises he's made.
