Swan Asleep is a dark comedy which explores the relationship between two young men who have an illicit business where they seduce, drug, and have sex with young women they meet, in order to produce rape pornography for the Internet. The perpetrators are the boys-next-door, who use their trustworthiness to carry out their crimes. Jack, the medical student, is determined to fund his career at any cost; Damien is an out-of-work cameraman whose only desire is to find work in his field. When Damien is forced by Jack to rape a woman he has fallen-in-love with, conflict emerges as he attempts to leave the business. With witty dialogue reminiscent of Dawson's Creek, the conflictual male bonding smacks of Y tu mama tambien.
