Byron is a writer whose first book got excellent critiques but sold poorly. Happily married to Dena, he must find a way to earn money since his editor doesn't want to publish his next novel. Desperate, Byron meets Luther, the owner of a male escort agency, who manages to convince him to work temporarily as an escort. From this moment on, Byron will live a double life. His relation with his wife, who's not aware of his new job, will little by little get worse and worse as Byron must now help the reknown writer Tobias Alcott, the husband of one of his clients, to rewrite his last book.

Although happily married with a young child, a down-on-his-luck writer (Garcia) named Byron Tiller is struggling to make ends meet. His first book has been published, but has been relegated to the discount tables at the bookstore. He continues trying to make a go of fiction writing, but can't pay the bills. Seemingly out of options, Tiller meets a dapper, odd man with a proposition -- Luther Fox (Jagger). Luther explains that he runs an exclusive male escort agency called Elysian Fields. He provides extremely wealthy women with equally attractive and intelligent dates; he knows Tiller would be an asset to his operation. Despite his reservations, Tiller agrees -- but he must now keep this new job hidden from his wife.
One of his first meetings is with an extremely attractive woman, whose aging husband is a well-known novelist. He is stuggling to complete a book that may be his last. Tiller gets caught up in aiding the aging writer and fully immersed in a shadow life.
