2 Male 3 Female

This is the story of two men and their fifty-three-year relationship

Ray marries and remains closeted in the small town where they grew up. Gil moves to the city to seek his freedom. Throughout their lives they struggle with their feelings for each other in a society that doesn't know how to make room for them, while their bond - shaped by a dark and violent event in their youth - forever draws them together

"Wistful and sweet-spirited...a quietly devastating picture of lost possibilities and love curtailed by circumstances..." Variety
