    • Synopsis
    • An emotional and psychological father and son thriller, set against the backdrop of a post-modern world of fashion, sexuality and youthful hedonism.
      35 year-old John is sophisticated and grounded, balancing a successful career as a photographer, while bringing up his son, Eric, alone. They seem to have the perfect world - modern, liberal and full of interesting people - and as Eric turns 15, John decides it’s time to reclaim a bit of his own adult life, just as Eric is beginning his on the sly. Before long, Eric has grown up way beyond his years, is completely off the rails and is strutting about a vibrant gay scene as out, proud and under age. John, meanwhile, is struggling with his own crisis of youth. His once assured personality slowly unravels and he neglects his career, alienates family and friends and begins a damaging journey following Eric’s exploits, secretly photographing him and piecing together details from behind the lens. It leads to damaging misinformed conclusions that not only rocks their world, but also cuts to the quick of what a father and son relationship should be.
