Synopsis

Provocative South African drama exploring the extent to which self-hatred and sexual denial can inflict damage on the life of a middle-aged man. 40-something Francois (Deon Lotz) lives a normal family life in Bloemfontein, South Africa. A devoted husband and father to two daughters, he is wholly unprepared for the tornado that knocks him off his feet when he meets beautiful 23-year-old Christian (Charlie Keegan), the son of a long-estranged friend. His infatuation leads him to rash actions that threaten to tear apart his entire existence and negate any chance of future happiness.
