Film details


Based on short stories by Bruce La Bruce, the film is centred on gay Toronto teenager, Cliff, who decides to celebrate his eighteenth birthday by losing his virginity. This leads him into a relationship with a twenty-something hustler, Butch. However, their heady platonic friendship is sharply ruptured when Butch takes Cliff's virginity exploitatively - an act he comes to regret.
