Twenty-two year old Jason ‘Roney’ Monroe is on top of the world professionally. It’s his second year on the ice in the majors and he’s been asked to represent the U.S. at the upcoming Olympic Games. For as good as Roney’s life is, there’s also a bleak, dark hole. The NHL promotes equality and says they would back gay players though no one has stepped forward, including Roney.
If not for his body’s betrayal and age Patrick Parker would still be a star hockey player in the NHL. At least he’s found a place working in management and he’s been appointed as an advisor to the Olympic Games.
Even though times have changed to the point where gays legally marry, Patrick chooses to disregard the younger players obvious interest. The more they try to ignore each other the higher the temperatures rise. When Patrick and Roney finally succumb to a single kiss they combust and know they want more. Tolerance is a wonderful concept, but talking could ruin their careers.
Angst and drama play a huge role in See the Light where honesty may not be the best policy. Telling the truth could potentially destroy either or both Roney and Patrick’s careers in professional hockey. See the Light features a truthful perspective on the turmoil of coming out verses denying a love that could last. Appealing and realistic this story doesn’t hold any punches and the ending will leave you wanting more.
