Storyline

Troubled TV personality Steven Evans struggles to find meaning in his life in the face of the superficial world he has created. Smothered by celebrity and materialism, Steven's only respite is through solitary visits to the ocean and shallow sexual encounters with the acquaintances that orbit his life. When his long-term partner hurls him headfirst into fatherhood, Steven's initial reluctance is gradually replaced with love, as he discovers, in his new family, a bond stronger than any he has experienced before. But the return of an unexpected visitor triggers off a series of events that thrusts Steven and his family into a cycle of loneliness, self-destruction and grief. Written by Marc Opitz

Not your usual story
20 October 2018 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

This film is a first class attempt at a dramatic story involving two men wanting to create a family. One enthusiastic the other very unsure about this idea. And is that situation so very different from the common place male/female story? No - it is not.

Due to social/political/religious indoctrination of "society" our two main characters are forced to take a dangerous path to accomplish their goal. The true message within this film is the oppression of social convention when two people of the same sex have the dedication and means to adopt a child and are rejected.

This film is good - not great - but worthy of anyone's time to gain an insight into a major part of our society and what they can offer but are rejected because they don't fit the social norms prescribed by the culturally religious dictates of society.
