Storyline

Crim is a businessman and father, whose business success is dependent upon how he presents himself to the world. In the locker room after a basketball game, he and a fellow player named Stanley are roughhousing as usual, when Crim angrily accuses Stanley of making a gay play for him. While many of the others in the locker room try to calm Crim down, stating that Stanley is just putting him on, D, Crim's roommate of five years, seems quietly to be the one most annoyed by Crim's reaction to Stanley. D and Crim talk about the issue later when they get back home, Crim's reaction to Stanley, only the latest in many vehemently homophobic statements and actions Crim has made in his life, which could destroy D and Crim's relationship, especially as Crim seems unwilling to acknowledge many aspects of his own life not only to the world but more importantly to himself.

Be Proud. We Are On The Right Track.
13 July 2013 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Crim, a basketball star, is a homophobic man, and hates to be considered gay. But he lives with D, one of his teammates, and feels something for him. D is gay and loves Crim, therefore Crim's words, "I'm not gay", hurt his heart. Because D avoids seeing Crim, Crim is angry and upset. And also, Crim suffers for his reality that he himself is gay. At least, he makes up his mind.

I watched a film about a gay person for the first time, so there are a lot of things to think over. I haven't met LGBT people, but I know there are many all over the world. Maybe, I have already met them and may not realize they are gay. I don't dislike LGBT people and rather, I welcome them. You might think "Easier said than done", but I have a reason why I can say it confidently.

Sexual minority is still not accepted all over the world. It is sad and must be changed. Crim's anguish is related to the situation. They cannot confess their sexuality easily because of the prejudice against them. But I want to say, "Be proud. We are on the right track."
