Leather is an entertaining and erotically charged tale of modern gay urbanites forced to adjust to country living. When New Yorker Andrew hears that his estranged father Walter has died, he travels with his boyfriend Kyle to the cabin in the Catskill Mountains where his father spent his final years. Upon arrival, Andrew is shocked to find his childhood friend, Birch, is living in the cabin and spent the last few years being mentored by Walter. Birch spends his days fishing, practicing carpentry and making items from leather. Though Birch embraces a peaceful lifestyle free of modern technology, his presence leaves Andrew with conflicting emotions - regret, jealousy, suspicion and possibly desire.
