Through the connection of Kurt’s son, Levi, Mickaela and Kurt meet at an audition where Kurt becomes infatuated. Mickaela’s undying desire to fulfill her dream of becoming a model collides with Kurt’s power hungry mentality. In tandem, Kurt’s right hand woman, Jesse, is seen having a reoccurring mantra to the other young models; We’ve all been made to feel uncomfortable for our dreams before, It’s those who know they are nothing that become something. Meanwhile, Kurt meets a friend, Walter J Hughes, in his court ordered AA sessions. Walter, a drunk, dealing with the loss of his job and family, gravitates to Kurt. Walter and him become close and decide to write a book about Kurt’s life. As Walter begins to get to learn about Kurt, he discovers a grave secret the man is hiding.
