“From outdoor erotic showers to passionate lovemaking scenes, the actors display an almost intoxicating chemistry that glows at the heart of the film.” – NEXT Magazine
Young gay novelist Teddy (fresh-faced John Ort) settles in at a remote house in the California desert for a few weeks to finish his book. Enamored with the bisexual caretaker Leo (dark and dreamy Gregory Marcel), Teddy’s sensual pursuit of the mysterious stranger leads to a drunken sexual encounter. As their connection deepens, this remarkably sensual, smart and sexy movie becomes an increasingly spooky psychological thriller, building a complex tale of suspense and drama.
With a bright, upbeat soundtrack by popsters The Sea and Cake, Patrick McGuin’s debut feature is a lush cinematic celebration of male beauty in the style of such intimate gay film classics as The Living End and Together Alone.
