Leni, a small-town, blue-collar lesbian, despairs of ever finding true love—or even just a Friday night date. Pickings are slim, but romantic woes aside, she’s happy living in the place she was born and raised. Then Leni gets a new job as a nightshift cook at The Jester’s Court, a bustling roadside truck stop, where she encounters an enigmatic colleague nicknamed Yak. Finding herself fascinated with the woman, Leni disregards all advice to the contrary and attempts to befriend her fellow chef. Yak proves to be a hard nut to crack, but what’s harder still is deciphering why everyone lives in fear of her. When events spiral out of control and Leni learns the dangerous truth, she must decide if winning Yak’s heart is worth the price she might have to pay.
