Cowboys & Angels

A hapless civil servant who gets more than he bargained for when he moves into an apartment with a gay fashion student and finds himself on the catwalk.

Shane Butler feels like he’s missing out on everything. He’s desperately unhappy – stuck in a horrible office job. He’s a talented artist who longs to go to art school.  When he moves in with Vincent, a gay fashion student, things begin to look up. Poles apart on almost every level, Vincent takes Shane under his wing and teaches him how to dress and style himself.

Vincent’s artistic leanings only serve to intensify Shane’s longing to quit his job and study art. When he meets and falls head over heels in love with Gemma, an ex-art student and Vincent’s best friend, something has to give.

Fate steps in to lend a hand in the form of Keith, a drug dealer who lives downstairs. When Shane stumbles across his stash hidden in the corridor, Keith befriends him and offers him the chance to make a lot of money by going on a drugs run. At first Shane refuses, but he desperately needs money to finance his studies, buy new clothes and reinvent himself...
