Compilation of four short films about homoerotic situations involving young men. In "Trevor", by Peggy Rajski, a teenager faces homophobia and falls in love for the first time. Tom DeCerchio directed "Nunzio's Second Cousin", telling the story of a gay cop who forces a gay-basher to come to his house and have dinner with his family. In "Alkali, Iowa", by Mark Christopher, a young gay man finds out some of his father's past secrets. And "Must Be the Music", by Nickolas Perry, follows four teenagers looking for love in nightclubs.

I enjoyed all four of the stories on the DVD. Each of them seemed like it came from the heart. The first three, though, seemed unfinished. Perhaps they were film-school exercises and not complete films.
I'd like to speak up on behalf of "Dadshuttle." This was added to the video anthology in place of "Trevor," which was part of the original film release of "Boys Life 2." I think that some may tend to dismiss it since it's a replacement. I found the acting in this piece to be moving and realistic. Besides being moved, I found myself a little shocked to find myself feeling a little like the subject matter is dated when it is so obviously not. Each of the four movies in the collection moved me in a small way, but Dadshuttle's the first thing I've seen in a long time that got me choked-up.
