Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Director Adrian Shergold uses interlocking stories to examine the connection between homophobia and gay desire in this hypersexual drama set in South London over the course of two sweltering summer days. It's a typical day in London: groups of young men are hitting the gay bars in droves, a devoted gay couple is preparing to take part in their commitment ceremony, casual encounters are unfolding in public restrooms, haughty politicians are trading stories at a posh dinner party, and a curious young homosexual has set his sights on the handsome man across the courtyard. Over time, each of these separate stories come together to form a rich urban tapestry inspired by the 2005 gay-bashing of Jody Dobrowski on Clapham Common, and filmed to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexual acts in Great Britain.
