This movie was done very poorly where the actual storyline is concerned. By simply expounding on the characters lives, adding a little more dramatic fill and by filming this dram in color, this film could have been a wonderful must see work. It is still a suggested viewing work that will hit home for a lot of people young, old, strait and gay alike.

It has been my experience that most gay dramas have sad or violent endings. Although this movie has no such ending it does however leave everything hanging with nothing coming to a complete end. It leaves the audience longing for much more. Movie should have been at least 80min. more with at least some character and/or story line conclusions.
