Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he’s such a misfit – he’s gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He’s an outcast and the butt of classmates’ fag jokes at high school. He’s different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he’s a “stereotypical gay.” He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian’s off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men.
Set on the Isle of Wight, the film tells the story of Anthony and Kyle, and their last night together as Kyle moves away leaving Anthony to look after his terminally ill mother. Poetic in nature, the film is concerned with exploring the intimate and often unspoken moment in which we give something special away.
