Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Ray Yeung's comedy Cut Sleeve Boys tells the story of two Chinese/British gay men named Mel and Ash. The two middle-aged friends attend the funeral of a former acquaintance named Gavin, and begin to question where they are in their own lives as a result. Mel starts to wonder how much longer he can maintain his endless string of plastic surgeries to maintain his looks. Ash decides to try life as a transvestite in order to find a man who will stay with him. Soon a secret from Gavin's past complicates matters for the two protagonists.
