    • Synopsis
    • Keep The Lights On chronicles the emotionally and sexually charged journey of two men.
      New York in the Nineties. Documentary filmmaker Erik and closeted lawyer Paul meet through a casual encounter and soon become a couple. They are risk takers—compulsive and fueled by sex.
      In an almost decade-long relationship defined by highs, lows and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity and to be true to himself.
