Short about male escort Mark (Michael Ellison) who suffers from anxiety attacks. He goes to a clients hotel room...but runs out of his pills. His client has to leave for a while and Michael runs into his clients 10 year old son Justin (Truman Chambers) who believes there's a monster under his bed. Mark tries to get rid of the kid but then realizes that this might be what he needs.
Kind of vague but ultimately touching little short. The ending is a little too pat but it is a (sort of) uplifting one. The acting is great by Ellison and especially Chambers. The whole film takes place in a hotel room and the corridor outside which actually helps the film. An interesting little gay short.
