Second in the series of films based on Richard Stevenson's 'Donald Strachey' crime novels. Soon after Strachey (Chad Allen) is asked for help by Paul Hale (Jared Keeso), the supposed poster boy for the Phoenix Foundation is found dead and the implications are suicide. But Strachey suspects foul play and, aided by Hale's mother Phyllis (Morgan Fairchild), who had initially encouraged her son to join the Foundation - a 'turn gay people straight' institute run by Dr Trevor Cornell (Michael Woods) and his wife Lynn (Anne Marie Loder) - he begins his investigation.

With the help of his straight-laced but adoring husband Tim Callahan and his occasionally too-eager assistant Kenny Kwon, Strachey's investigation leads him on a dark and dangerous trail into the world of "gay conversion therapy"--a twisted mix of psychology and religion designed by Dr. Trevor Cornell to turn homosexuals "straight." ...Shock to the System
