Robert Ashcroft is a sixty-three year old retired car salesman who has just moved with his wife, Veronica, from Southern California to South Carolina. He learns just a week before Thanksgiving that his thirty year old son, Paul, is gay. Paul is coming to visit for the holiday, and he is bringing along his boyfriend with him. Robert has one week to come to terms with his son's sexuality and to prepare himself for the visit. Little Blue Whistle is an entertaining rollercoaster ride of dreams, memories, and subsequent insights into fathers, sons, and our brave new world.
