A passionate romance blossoms between two teenage boys behind prison walls, where physical contact is forbidden, in Zeno Graton’s emotionally-charged feature debut.
17-year-old Joe is preparing to return to society after being in juvenile detention. Just before his release William enters the facility, and the boys find the passion and affection they had been yearning for, leading Joe to question what kind of freedom he truly desires. Khalil Gharbia and Julien de Saint Jean (Lie with Me, QSFF23) are electric as two boys finding each other in an environment designed to keep them apart.
