She comes from a well-off uptown New York City family where the mother is a busy interior designer and her father is always away on business but travels more than he cares to travel. Ellen has an older brother, Link, who is very good friends with James. The three of them are very close friends. Ellen has a crush on James and is curious if James and Link are involved in a homosexual relationship. She is torn between her admiration of Link and her admiration of James, and begins a quest to learn more about the culture of the gay community in an effort to understand herself, her brother, and his friend.
