Three queer adolescent friends find themselves in a difficult situation when they decide to sneak into a gay club in Toronto. To enter this promised land, insolent runaway Julien, lively Tony, and timid Otis decide to commit a minor crime, unaware of its indirect consequences: the disappearance of Dawn, Julien’s guardian. The three young boys start to investigate, and make unexpected, disturbing discoveries about Dawn’s life. This short debut film is intended as a sincere love letter to teenage friendship and a powerful proof of how persevering and adaptable the queer community can be.
