Lena Ann Balambao,
Chris and RJ reunite five years after coming out to their families and their church as gay men, where the factors that led to their separation are revealed as they mourn the death of their mutual friend Rodney.
Summer in Berlin. Jonas is planning a trip through the little known area of the Uckermark in preparation for a photography project. He invites his best friend, Phillip, to come along. They haven't met since the time they spent together in London. So they pack up their Mercedes camper and take off across uncharted territory, stopping whenever they see something they like, taking pictures and generally enjoying a laid-back road trip. The fact that Phillip is gay has never been an issue for either of them. When they pick up a hitchhiker named Boris, however, who shows Jonas some interesting spots and starts to make moves on Phillip, the friendship of the two starts to fray. Maybe three's a crowd after all? By the end of the summer, things between Jonas and Phillip won't ever be the same again.Written by

Although there is a gay subtext to this particular road-trip film, it's definitely not for the mainstream gay viewer. No...this is a hard-core German fetish movie, specifically for a) people who "enjoy" a lot of scenes with men urinating b) gratuitous outdoor nudity with absolutely no premise other than to show out-of-shape men with small penises and c) that every straight man can turn gay under the right circumstance. While the chemistry between the two lead characters is supposed to be that of two best friends; one gay and one straight, neither comes off as believable...meaning they both come off as gay. And they all come off as obnoxious...as does this film. When you have to resort to long periods of scenery and gratuitous nudity, you know your film is in trouble. Enough said.
