A (completely straight) man is hard to find. "80/20" follows Jesse on a journey of self-discovery trying to figure out what it means to be a "real" man in the new century, forming new relationships, falling in love, and making connections in the most surprising places. When his tight-knit social circle questions his sexuality, it leaves the questions: "am I really straight" or "am I straight enough?" If everyone has their own percentage of straight to gay, what's yours?
