A teenage boy named David is afraid of being transparent. When David’s best friend, Johnathan, notices his abuse at home, David must overcome his fear of rejection in order to embrace his friend’s support.
We are all in need of intimacy. However, this can only truly exist on the other side of vulnerability (something that masculinity helps to create extra barriers for). Masculinity also helps to encourage the idea that love is only for romantic relationships. When this happens, men miss out on the much-needed beauty of deep, trusting friendships. This film explores how this phenomenon plays out in an adolescent setting with an approach that is both honest and poetic. We hope that you will partner with us in telling this story and in transforming some of these tragic norms.
