Set in Kentucky in the 1960s, A Fraternal Attraction is the story of a burgeoning love affair between two brothers. Rob, fresh out of Senior High, finds himself falling in love with his older brother Luke, who has just returned from a two-year tour of duty in Vietnam. In desperation, he confides his secret passion to Loubelle, owner of a bakery and repository of the town secrets. She takes Rob under her wing, and together they embark on an ambitious campaign to seduce the tough ex-soldier. Things start to get out of hand as the brothers’ mutual fascination with each other snowballs into something more unmanageable and dangerous.
