A college age gay man discovers how to love himself and accept love from others, despite the disapproval of his father, and tacit disapproval of his mother, who does nothing to counter his father's overt homophobia. In reaction to being raised by hateful parents, he regularly engages in self harming activities. After one particularly harmful stunt, he ends up in the hospital emergency room, where he meets a sweet male nurse. Written by TrivWhiz

Did You Know?


Michael Garner: The eyes are the windows to the soul, when peering in you can see it move. Often it will hide, afraid, alone, wrongly judged, shamed into a corner. When it knows that it's loved, without reserve or condition, it accepts itself and shines from within once again.

Powerful and Moving!
5 March 2020 | by ianliberatoreSee all my reviews

I consider myself lucky to have stumbled upon this magnificent film! I have seen my fair share of gay films but this takes the gay as one if there best out there as well as being very original and not falling into the cliche films I had come to expect from what I typically see. The main characters were greatly portrayed by amazing actors in very unique roles that made me want to invest not only my time by my heart into them. The film is low budget but does not look it what so everWhich is another great feat that I was not expecting and was pleased to see. Props to the writer and director for crafting a great story which has now become one of my absolute favorites (I watched it twice in one day). I only wish this was available on DVD. I look forward to seeing more from the cast and director.
