“The most thrilling, terrifying coming-out story you’ll have seen in years.” - Gay Times

Synopsis: This blistering British indie centers on Cal, a teenage thug so desperate to hide his true sexuality from his fellow gang members that he binges on drugs, anonymous hook-ups and acts of violence. But his secret desires are uncovered when he rescues a kind-eyed French exchange student from one of the clan’s sadistic hate crimes. Though the two boys fall passionately in love, Cal’s crew is bent on revenge for his betrayal and the young lovers are placed in unspeakable danger.
