Thirty-something New Yorker Ben (Matthew Fifer) is stuck in life between meaningless hook-ups and awkward sessions with his free-spirited therapist, Sophie. Things change when he meets Sam (Sheldon D Brown), a handsome stranger with whom he forms an immediate connection.

As the pair while away balmy summer nights getting to know each other intimately, their layers begin to peel away, revealing the secrets and fragilities they must share if they are to truly let the other person in.


Content Warning: The film explores some of the difficulties a man experiences as a result of having been sexually abused as a child. Though the abuse is not seen, and is not discussed in excessive detail, it is a prevalent theme.

The pain and poetry of being young, queer, troubled and in love.
