Having just come out and broken up with his girlfriend, Adam begins exploring the clubs of London’s vibrant gay scene, hoping to find acceptance and freedom. But things get complicated when he develops feelings for the handsome Rocky, who is hiding a secret. As their romance grows, Rocky yearns to reveal his secret to Adam, but before he can do so, a disastrous incident brings the truth out.
Why It’s a Gem
Jake Graf, as Adam, and Harry Rundle, as Rocky, have great chemistry, and we get a palpable sense of their loneliness and vulnerability. The short film takes us into some of London’s fascinating gay hotspots, and without judgment, gives us a powerful glimpse into the overuse of alcohol and drugs in the LGBTQ club culture.
